    So, I found this interesting sculpture on one of the buildings in my home town. I was wondering what the creature could be. I looked into the history of the building to find that it was built by a rich merchant who had travelled the world so this could be anything.

    More info:
    -Built in XVIII Century (Germany)
    -Human head, fish/scaly body and tail (curved tail), and paws of a dog or lion, and two small wings.
    -Here it is:
    (It was renovated recently so it does not look very old)

    It could be a heraldic symbol; the Satyre Fish was a compound monster with satyr's head, fish body and wings.
