Toba Batak, Sumatra
This rare amulet, also know as (Parsimboraan), is a true monumental miniature.
Cast from lead, this magical object is wonderfully conceived. Two half
are figures represented in totem style, surrealistically joined at the
opposite ‘poles’ of the piece. The original woven magical
bundle is still present on the top of the object. The surface of the object
shows great handling; the highpoints of the piece are all worn, consistent
with traditional handling.
This amulet stands 4.5 inches tall
