Gong Ornaments

Dayak, Borneo
19th Century

These beautifully cast Bronze gong ornaments are the best group that I have ever handled.
Each ornament is of an Aso Dragon, the Dayak’s mythological beast. The two smaller ornaments are well crafted, they exhibit a fine handled patina from long periods of use. The larger example of the three is very impressive as well. The two intertwining Aso dragons create a magical work of art. These ornaments are of a quality that is only found in the earliest examples. In excellent condition.

The smaller examples are 3.75 inches in height.

The larger is 4 inches in height.
