This lion is carved standing up on its back feet in dancing posture as if performing for an audience. It was found in Tra Kieu, Quang Nam Province in 1918.
The museum of Cham sculpture displays approximately 300 sculptures, among which some are made from terracotta. The sculptures were collected from Cham Temples and towers throughout Central Vietnam, more specifically the area stretching from Quang Binh to Binh Thuan. All the sculptures are displayed in ten showrooms named after the localities where the pieces have been discovered.
