Man är ännu osäker huruvida det snidade konstverket föreställer en snok eller en huggorm. Kanske det föreställer en rent mytologisk orm.

Sinuous Stone-Age snake sculpture unearthed in Finland
Scientists are trying to understand the meaning and purpose of the unique discovery, which comes from the site of a 4,000-year-old lake shore.
The unique, 4,000-year-old wooden artifact was discovered last year at Järvensuo I, a site in southwest Finland that encompasses a stretch of peat and mud, according to an article published today in the journal Antiquity.
The 21-inch-long snake figurine was found roughly a foot and a half down in a peat layer at the site, lying alone on its side. Its features were carefully carved from a stick, and the artist took care to incorporate the sinuous curves of the branch to serpentine effect.
