The snake slithers up through the leaves to attack its prey. The snake has beady eyes that look like they were accented by nail heads.
The carver or artist took great pains to carve out the snake's scales giving it a realistic appearance and painting diamond shapes on the snake's back. Perhaps it is a diamond back rattle snake.
