Handle from a Betel Nut Crusher

Lombok, Indonesia
Early 20th c

Provenance: William Brill collection, NY. By descent to family member

A true tour-de-force of sculpture; this wooden handle exhibits an uncanny level of detail. One figure sits atop riding another figure; both having extremely animated expressions that are carved deeply. This is a dynamic work of art rarely found among other utilitarian handles. A wonderful object with great age that exhibits the Indonesians ability to create a monumental miniature of great quality.
