It could be Matsya, a reincarnation of the goddess Vishnu who saved the world from flood. I would date it early to mid 18th century. Nice piece!

Nice Badek,
The angle of the hilt indicates Javanese style, but the knob on the end of the scabbard and style of decoration points me to Sumatra more then Java. Some of these are attributed to...
