Muzium Negara - Figurehead of Royal Boat

Figurehead of Royal Boat

This figurehead, shaped dragon's head, is made of wood from a jackfruit tree (nanka). It is carved with a pattern of intertwined bean tendrils, and was used as an adornment for a boat belonging to Malay royalties.

It owned by the royal family in the late 19th century and is more than a century old.
