Fantastic bronze dragon Shinto shrine /Buddhist temple purification water spout. Before entering the shrine or temple many sacred places have a dragon water spout that keeps purified water going into a stone tsukubai where visitors can purify hands and mouth before entering for prayer or offerings. This ryu or dragon is c.1980 and sits on a base of swiring buddhist clouds. The dragon along with the Ho or phoenix guards the buddha's teachings in the celestial realm. A spout comes out of the dragon's mouth and at the base is a pipe to hook up a water source. 85cm tall and 78cm wide. Ask for shipping quote.
