I've also seen a meer where, on the front is-- well, I'll couch this in allegorical terms. "Twig with berries, in the process of spelunking." No bodies, no limbs, just the bare 'bones' 'in the act.'

Believe it or not, I've encountered that carving on two separate occasions, too. Neither was well-carved; both gave me the distinct impression that the carver hadn't seen either set of equipment in a long time, and had a poor memory re: exactly how they look. In short, they were hideous, and not just due to the blunt subject matter! Both were Turkish, like the one posted here.
