Very old kalebas or water container made of rotan and bamboo. Hand painted with images from the Ramayana.
This kalebas was made before 1936. The Tropen Museum has a comparable copy that came in their possession in 1936. Most likely the kalebas was already made for the few rich American and European tourists, who just discovered the island. The last photo shows the kalebas with an handpainted coconut to give an idea of the large size. Very rare object. Pls click on the photo for more photos&info
