Handle from Betel Nut Crusher

Bali, Indonesia
19th-Early 20th century

Previous collection: Jacques Kerchache collection, Paris

This beautiful Balinese handle is carved from wood 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 legs; this is done with fascinating precision. Objects of this quality would only be owned by important society members. In excellent condition
