At first, I wondered if rather than a punched series of holes, it was actually a representation of a chain (possibly with wide links, or perhaps that was just simpler to carve in stone).
But I do think something is attached. I'm guessing that what we are seeing may be some sort of scabbard for a knife, which only the top of the handle is sticking out of. In fact, looking at the first, lower detail picture, I'm pretty certain of it.
he wears a cord-belt, below and to the left of the knot of which is
suspended this curious object, carved in low relief on the smooth area of the
fabric just there :
it appears to be some sort of "heart-shaped" object, suspended from a
wound cord smaller in diameter than the cord which serves as Peter's belt.
to the right of it is something else which i can't quite make out:
perhaps a thin leather(?) strap, looped in a half-hitch around the belt at the
top and ending in a series of regularly punched holes.
is there something suspended from it, just where the punched holes
what *are* these objects ??
