Imperial kylin a overlooked creature from chinese and tibetan mythology. They are second only to dragons in mythology , and this one is a tibetan kylin with a full suit of armor with a helmet you can see the horns sticking out the back. This is a circa 1900 tibetan kylin bronze temple lion. There were usually two at the entrance to a temple and were used for incense sticks and offerings.

The tail is not original to the piece was missing when i got it. I made one from resin and than sent the tail and the kylin out to have a bronze one poured from a wax casting process.

Please examine the photos carefully he swivels on the center joint of his body i think so it would stand on a uneven surface, neck has a joint too but its not moving anymore. Approx 18" high x 16" long x 8 wide over 20 lbs. This item is made of bronze.
