This is an Indic deity from Pura Tegeh Kahuripan, on Puncak Penulisan, Bali. Pura is the term for temple. This object probably dates from the 11th century CE and pre-dates the arrival of the Majapahit court in Bali. It is Indic rather than Hindu, although contemporary Balinese Hindus venerate this place and it is considered a Shiva temple.
In the temple’s courtyard area, there are many relics from the Megalithic era, in Bali.
