Cutting Knife

Dayak, Borneo
19th Century

Bahau sculpture is known for its power and attention to detail; this cutting knife is a tour de force of sculpture. The carver brilliantly used the curvature of the deer antler in the theme of the carving. The stylized Aso's have an exceptional flow and balance. The original blade is present and is well patinated. In excellent condition.

This knife stands 8 inches tall.
