Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi I reckon it is from Indonesia. Bali. Near Ubud.

    I have some Balinese ancestor portraits here. They are done from the same wood. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/19156-balinese-ancestor-portraits
    The Balinese are master carvers.
    Hindu too!
    Barong is the term for these I think in Indonesian.

    There's Barong Ket (lion),Barong Landung (giant), Barong Celeng (boar), Barong Macan (tiger), Barong Naga (dragon - serpent).

    I think yours is Barong Naga!
