Decorative Painted Bhutanese Lute
A beautiful decorative traditional lute with dragon's head from Bhutan.
This Bhutanese lute is a decorative item, it's without strings and I don't think they can be fitted. Nonetheless a beautiful and highly unusual piece with nicely executed painting of the carved dragon's head, fretboard and a painting of a lute player near the soundbox.
The last photo of a Bhutanese man playing a similar lute is from the internet.
