Ah, now that makes sense to me!  It fits with the other rondels that start the program - the sun for Summer, workers for Autumn (in the "Labors" sequence, Autumn is a time of harvest, making wine and tilling fields), the robed & nude figures for Spring (taking off the warm cloak as the weather chages) and the figure by the fire for Winter.

All the other suggestions were helpful and informative as well!  Doesn't answer the question of exactly what he's holding, but the seasonal identification is good enough for me!

Thanks to all who came up with options!
