Handle from a Betel Nut Crusher

Lombok, Indonesia,
19th century

Provenance: Loed Van bussel collection, Amsterdam
This very fine Lombok handle is amongst the best I’ve ever owned. Carved from wood, it’s very well conceived, with effective use of negative space and fluid movement throughout the entire sculpture. Both figures have large and intense round eyes that draw the viewer to engage with the sculpture. It’s very well worn surface has a honey brown colored patina. It is in excellent condition.
