to Bamboo Medicine Container
Nagju Dayak; Borneo
This finely carved medicine stopper consists of a feline creature holding
the head of an ancestor between its legs. There is great tension in the
body of the figure as if ready to spring out into motion. Contrary to
appearances; the holding of the head may symbolize protection of the human
figure. The patina is varied and encrusted from years of use and storage.
In excellent condition.
This stopper stands 5 inches tall.
