Artwork-code: TOBO-00867
Category: Woodcarvings - Pre War
Description: Charming bust of a young Indonesian girl
Period: 1930-1950
Comment: Excellent example of a very fine woodcarving technique. When more tourists came to Indonesia after the war, the demand for souvenirs increased considerably. Wooden busts were popular, because they had no protruding parts and were easy to take along in bags or suitcases. On Bali djanger busts became popular by the tourists and therefore mass produced. On Java the loro blonyo, a set of a female and a male bust, were popular as a gift to a newly wed couple. Single busts of a man or woman were less in demand, let alone single busts of young Indonesians. In that respect this bust is remarkable.
