Nicely carved cockspur case, Kotak Taji, in the shape of an owl. Lombok, wood, before 1940.
1925-1940
This case is a good example of pure folk art. This was not a decorative object, but at the time in use during the cock fighting. The middle panel shows a deer, most likely to bring the owner luck. In the case there is room for 6 spurs. A similar case is shown in the standard book about cockspur cases by Pieter van Donk, Indonesian Cockspur Cases, on page 52. Pls click on the photo for more info&photos.

Cockspur case, local name Kotak Taji. Bali, wood
1930-1940
Top piece in the category Kotak Taji. The colours are very well preserved, as is the overall condition. The owner must have been rich, or maybe of royal descent, because this case could contain 16 spurs. This implies he owned a considerable number of fighting cocks. The figure is Twalen, one of four servant clowns from the Hindu Mahabharata story. The enlarged nose is regarded as a beauty feature on Bali. Provenance; Old Dutch collection.
