Betel Nut Crusher Handle

Lombok, Indonesia
19th Century

A true tour-de-force of sculpture; this handle exhibits an uncanny level of detail. A female figure sits atop a male figure with extremely animated expressions carved deeply. This is a dynamic work of art rarely found among other utilitarian betel-nut crusher handles. A top quality object with great age that exhibits the Indonesians ability to create a monumental miniature of master work status.

This Handle stands 3.5" in height.
