In the lower right arm: a scorpion, and a bird (?), in the lower left arm: two knives held behind the back. Behind the wings: one scepter on the left, two scepters on the right. A double strap crosses the chest in X-shape,  a bird’s tail and a crocodile’s tail project from the hips to the left of the body.
