Why this is a
Masterpiece

The lion head used to be carved for special occasions like setting up a new “ger”, a wedding and a ceremony for cutting a baby's hair for the first time. In 1975, the musician V. Bazarragchaa was awarded “The Best Volunteer Artist” title.

History of the Object
The black lion-head fiddle traditional musical instrument was made in the 19th century. The last owner of this instrument was Bazarragchaa who, as the firstborn son, inherited it from his father Vandan Dandar from the Erdenemandal Soum in Arkahngai Province. The fiddle is made of birch, with a spoon-shaped leather body, a carved lion head on the top and two cords of horse hair made of two different colours (brown and white).
