Large Hand Carved Singa Singa Tribal Carving from the Batak People, Sumatra

About

A large antique hand carved tribal carving from the Batak People, northern Sumatra, called a Singa Singa. Attracting our eye with its charismatic presence, this large hand carved sculpture from the Indonesian island of Sumatra is one of the most iconic images of the Batak tradition. Called a Singa Singa, it was placed in the corners of the traditional houses adorned with boat-shaped roofs to be used as a good luck ornament and protect one's home and dispel fear. Presenting a high forehead and angular traits, this Singa Singa sculpture is accented with traces of black, white and orange polychrome. Perfect to decorate any wall or perhaps to be mounted on a base, its riveting presence and delicate scrolling décor will make it an ideal conversation piece.
