Extremely rare architectural element comprising a well sculpted water dragon drinking water from the sea. This was most likely attached to a corner buttress in a wealthy home. This unusual item is both fun and historically intriguing and dates to the early 1800's. It would have at one time been painted in an array of many colors and its intent and purpose was most likely a guardian and protector of the home. Measures 10.75" high, 10" wide, and 9" ear to ear.
