I hope you're okay with me borrowing this image Kino. It looks very much like the pommel of the Nias sword called Balato. IIRC the creature is called Lasara in Nias folklore.

Kino thank you for sharing these wonderful images of this breathtaking exhibition of Rajput arms and armour.

For enthusiasts of Indian arms who would like to learn more on these exciting weapons and the history of the arms of these valiant warriors, the Rajputs, may I recommend the 2 volume set by Dr. Robert Elgood;
"Rajput Arms and Armour: The Rathores and Their Armoury at Jodhpur Fort"
for further reading.

Kino,

Thanks for posting these beautiful examples. Given the diverse sources credited for these items, it must have taken some time for the curators to have assembled the exhibition. Is there a catalogue published of this exhibition?

Ian.

Yes, there is a hardbound catalog available. I didn't get one.
