Amulets from Shaman’s
Magic Container

Dayak, Borneo Indonesia
19th Century

While these two amulets are small in scale; they possess a monumentality through their expressiveness and delicately sculpted bodies. Their charming faces seem to be gazing right into the spirit world. They possess an encrusted soot like black patina from years of handling and being stored in the long house. They are in excellent condition and are mounted on a custom base.

They stand 3.5 inches tall.
