The left and right image both are segments from prints which show the burning of Thomas Cranmer.

The image in the center is a +135° rotated detail from Henry Holiday's illustration to the final chapter The Vanishing in Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark,

In The annotated ... Snark, Martin Gardner wrote about Henry Holiday's illustration to the last chapter of Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark: "Thousands of readers must have glanced at this drawing without noticing (though they may have shivered with subliminal perception) the huge, almost transparent head of the Baker, abject terror on his features, as a giant beak (or is it a claw?) seizes his wrist."

I think, there is neither a beak nor a claw.
