For a few reasons, that staff would be better cut flat on the bed using two sided machining techniques.
Create the vectors for the outline of the staff with the crook flat to the bed. Use a two rail sweep to make the shape and then mirror the shape for the other side. The ball probably would be machined separately in two pieces and then applied to a flat on the end.
Cutting a long thin shape on the rotary is a challenge that needs special supports to prevent movement and vibration.
