Gothic Cavallo?

While exploring the Museo Storico Navale (Venice's maritime museum and a true hidden gem), I noticed this dramatic piece mounted on the wall near some amazing boats on display.

There wasn't any sign or descrition anywhere indicating what the piece was. My guess is that it's a cavallo, but it could have been mounted somewhere else on a boat.

Anybody out there got cavalli like this on their gondola?
