Scorpion

(no subject)

So.

While shopping at ye olde thrifte shoppe last month, I picked up this crazy statue thing. It's about nine inches high, base is about five inches long, and is freakin' heavy. But most importantly, I have no idea who it is supposed to be a statue of. Thusly, I bring my dilemma to you, the unwashed masses.

He's got scroll or tablet or something under his right arm, and most curiously, he appears to have vestigial horns. Or something.

So. Yeah. Guesses? Feel free to pass this along to any, uh, statue-experts you might know. I'm too curious.

[EDIT: Mystery solved, because frecklefaerie rules. See comments for details.]
