Cradle Guardians - Hand-carved Cradle Guardian Unicorn

There once was a Hindu King who adored his baby and had a very special governess to watch over the child. One day, she had to go away on a very long journey. Since the King wouldn't trust anyone else to watch over his baby, he called his artisans to carve a likeness of the governess to hang over the baby's cradle to guard it from bad dreams and evil spirits.

Today, Balinese artisans still create cradle guardians in the form of fanciful creatures like mermaids and dragons, and now all the other creatures of the earth. In addition to the traditional flying ladies originally carved for the Hindu King.
