The animal depicted on this piece was drawn by the Latin missionary monks when they wrote the Kells manuscript, and similar to most of the animals illustrated, they were drawn from the imagination of the monks. It has been argued that this creature may be a lion, St. Mark's symbol. The opening line of this gospel is "Tunc crucifixerant Xpi cum eo duos latrones", ("Then they crucified Christ, and with him two robbers"). The 'T' in 'Tunc' is where this creature has been taken from.
