original legong dance crown with neckornament
1930-1940
Written on the inside ; V. ZAREMBA (also the neckornament carries this signature), she was the owner of the dancehat and a niece of the famous legongdancer Ni POLLOK. Made of wood, buffalo-leather, mirrors and bamboo. It must have been a painstaking work to cut all the beautiful ornaments into the leather. Only the best dancers were given this quality of hats. Rare object because on Bali usually the older hats are re-used by painting them over or fixing new material onto them. This hat is still in the original form in which it was made as is the original neckornament. Looking at the seize of the neck it is clear that the user was not older than 10-12 years. In pre war Bali only very young girls were allowed to perform the difficult legong dance. Pls click on each photo to see two larger images.

Wooden DJANGER dancehat from Bali.
1930-1940
Extremely rare. Remarkably preserved because this is an object from the 1930s. It was collected by a Dutch painter who brought it to Holland after his stay in Bali. Another reason for its rarity is that there are no more Djanger dances on Bali. How few of such fragile dance hats in the original condition could have survived the burden of time? On the back there is an old sticker with the text from the company who produced it ; Balinese artcraft Industry; TOKO RATIH, Den Pasar Bali Indonesia. In an old brochure I found that this particular toko was situated in the Pasar Street 27 in Den Pasar. Pls click on each photo to see two larger images.
