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.

"Namaste little Buddha"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This bronzed praying Buddha arrived and instantly added some peace and zen to my home. It?s forged of bronze and easy to move around to many areas of my home. Sometimes in the window looking out to the trees or on the shelf by a plant or candle. Thank you Elayanti for creating this unique and thoughtful piece. It was well packaged for international delivery so that it would arrive safely and I really appreciate that.

"To add to my cherished collection."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A few years ago I started to collect Buddha statues. Not just any they had to be special, the pose/the colors, what it is made of....etc. Most of my Buddhas were purchased from Novice.They are so beautiful and so well crafted I cant resist them.
