Very old kalebas or water container made of rotan and bamboo. Hand painted with images from the Ramayana.
1930-1936
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

Woodcarving of a goat
1950-1970
Good example of small carving done by an accomplished artist. This goat was made for the tourist market; no doubt about that. And maybe he was able to finish this in a day. But still such a goat is pretty hard to create, and the result is great; full of class and humor. Maybe Ajun was enjoying himself!

Silver modesty plate or Jempang from Sulawesi, Toraja land. Worn by young children to cover the private parts.
1910-1940
This Jempang is much bigger than the usual Jempang. See the last photo. It raises the question whether this seize was made for somewhat older children.
