Two magnificent and rare end-pieces in the shape of lion-like animal heads. The pieces were held by pegs to the end of the beams in a construction. The heads show fangs and mane and curled horns. In their mouths they hold a rope or cord connected to an object that is no longer there, as if they are pulling or holding up something that was on the beam or on the building. Single piece of wood, decorated with the typical colors of red, white and green and some ochre decorations on the horns. Tibet, 18th century or earlier.
