This French finial is a bit worse for the wear. Your guess is as good as mine as to how this pigeon, which once topped the roof of a barn or house in Picardie, received so many pockmarks.

Se faire passer pour un pigeon; se faire pigeonner:  to be played for a fool or dupe

un épi de faîtage:  a finial
un peu mal en point; un peu triste:  worse for the wear
