Toba Batak Silver Ring
Bold and intimidating, the awe-inspiring face on this ring represents a mystical creature called Singa. It is found throughout Asia from Austronesia as far as Mesopotamia and Hindustan. In the culture of the Austronesian Batak, images of the Singa are often carved into jewellery, amulets, stone or wooden chests, and traditional Batak houses.
Our two rings differ slightly between each other, the first five pictures below correspond to ring size 14, the others to ring size 22.
