Sitting balinese man with fighting cock and bottle.
Many of these type of 'master-and-his-fighting-cock' - sculptures have been made on Bali because of the popularity of the cockfighting, which was a favourite pastime of the Balinese people. Not at least because there was a lot of gambling going on as well. Maybe the maker of this sculpture wanted to express a happy winner who bought a bottle of ricewine from his profit. Sculptures from the Sanur area are rare.
