This is a traditional Balinese singa. The singa's role in Balinese spiritual life is as an opponent of evil and protector of the good. From central Bali-the area around Klungkung.
You can read more about the singa on my Musings.
It is quite old, 50 plus years. The body is painted dark red, the floral decoration on its wings is green. it would have had gold decorations around the mouth and on the wings, but this was gold paint not gold leaf and the paint has oxidized.
It is almost a pair with the Singa Bersayap 4 which is from the same maker. If you are interested inhaving a pair then contact us and we can negotiate a price. Also, the price of these pieces is calculated to include shipping and insurance. If you are able to pick it up we can further reduce the price.
