Handle from a Betel Nut Crusher

Bali, Indonesia
Late 19th century

This beautiful Balinese handle is carved from horn and possesses an incredibly worn patina from generations of handling. The figure is curled into an almost fetal like position holding his hands to his face; this is done with fascinating precision. Objects of this quality would only be owned by important society members. In excellent condition.
