Details

A mythical creature whose body fuses the features of a horse, a dragon and a lion, the naga morsarang comes to life in bronze. Four children and an adult play on its body. Sukaenah presents this bronze sculpture that was once reserved for the datu (priest) of the Batak people in Sumatra. He was regarded as the intermediary between the human and supernatural worlds, and he kept old potions, medicinal herbs and texts in the naga morsarang container. It is believed that the humans portrayed on the box represent the preceding datus.

Beautiful work of art. Wish the size was bigger as the naga morsarang would look more imposing.

"New sign of life!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have just returned to work at the office from a long stretch of remote work at home. The first thing I did upon returning back to the office was placing this turtle on my desk. To me, it is a sign of coming out of hiding from the pandemic, coming out of my protective shell and back to some semblance of normalcy.
