Tikbalang, also known as Peace-Loving Tikbalang is a 35.56 x 29.21 cm. bronze sculpture by Solomon Saprid in 1971. Saprid does not portray the tikbalang as a fearsome creature rather a playful, witty and somewhat comic creature. In this work, the tikbalang is a flower child of the late 1960's with a peace pendant hanging from its neck while playing the guitar.
