Antique Japanese Lion

There was a custom in Okinawa where roof craftsmen used leftover tiles and plaster to make a plaster shisa to express their gratitude to the landlord.
This item is the head of an early stucco Shisa from the Meiji era. She has a really soft and funny look. When I imagined that this was on the roof, I was stunned. How about as an object?
