The Legend of the Crucifix Fish.
Number on back at left: FK.41.
Note legend reads, "Of all the fishes in the sea our Lord chose the lowly sailcat to remind us of his misery. His body on the cross is outlined, the hilt of the sword which was plunged into his side is clearly defined. Look on the back of the fishes bone where the Roman shield is shown. When you shake the cross you will hear the dice being tossed for our Lords blood stained dress, those who can hear them - will be blessed."
