Description: Offering container for new born children. Local name; Sanggah Kumara. Made of wood and rope. Bali, around 1900.
Period: 1880-1900
Comment: Extremely rare object. This antique offer tray was used to hang above a new born child at the ceiling. That is why the bottom has been carved with the child god Kumara for protection. Inside the tray offers were placed in order to protect the child from evil forces. Such offers could be flowers which colours are white, red, yellow and blue representing the various wind directions. This kind of object is only to be found in musea and private collections. A similar object can be seen on the last photo. Pls click on the photo to get more info and photos.
