Wooden shishi-gashira (lion's head) which is worn in the ritual performance of shishimai (lion dance) in the festivals or on the New Year's Day. Shishimai is originated in China which mimics the movement of the lion, however it is the imaginary lion. This one comes with cotton cloth for the lion dance with letters Showa 29 (1954) and the name of the person who made it or dedicated it to a shrine. In good condition but the coth has much damage.
