Myth Picture

A statue from one of the many war memorials that dot the top of the Hoe, at Plymouth. This chap is clearly from mythology of some sort, but I'm unsure as to who he is and why he is stabbing that bird in the mouth.
Taken on a snowy day, at the completely wrong time of year. I love the unpredictability of British weather!
