the beast's coiled body carved in high relief atop an integral bi disc, poised in an inward curving crouch with the head resting on a hind paw, the mouth agape with fangs exposed and the tongue curling upward beneath a bewhiskered lip, the bulging eyes framed by exaggerated comma-shaped eyebrows, the face further animated by tufts of fur sweeping outward from the cheeks and a long pair of curved horns extending down the neck to the shoulder blades, the energetic twisting movement of the body accentuated by the rolling contours of the musculature and fur, the bi disc carved in low relief with chilong roaming amidst swirling clouds Length 3 5/8 in., 9 cm
