Je viens de prendre tardivement connaissance de la question "mystère". À première vue cette sculpture incomplète, qui pourrait provenir d'un élément d'ornementation remanié d'un portail roman, m'évoque un gros animal (mammifère) "sur les genoux". C'est une attitude qui est observable chez les éléphants (pas seulement ceux du PS), le seul mammifère réputé pour posséder quatre genoux. Après tout, il y a bien des éléphants sculptés sur un des chapiteaux de l'église romane de la Chapelle-Saint-Robert, et l'animal n'est pas rare dans l'art roman. Mais il faudrait avoir plus d'informations sur la sculpture en question ainsi que sur son environnement...
