The god Vishnu as temple guard. Wooden hand coloured statue made in Bali 1920-1940
1920-1940
Subdued almost solemn statue. Vishnu sits on a stupa and has a mantra, a certain hand gesture in the Hindu mythology. This feature with the age factor is enough proof that this carving was NOT made for the tourists, but rather as a Hindu object to protect the visitor entering the temple. Most likely it was placed near a temple entrance in a prewar Balinese village. Real folk art! Clicking on the photo will show more photos & info.

Balinese high priest with container for holy water
1930-1940
Excellent carving from the Pita Maha period(1928-1945). There are beautiful details, like the open container and much detail to the fingers and feet of the priest. On photo 9, 10 and 11 the art deco lines are clearly visible. Carved in the expensive satinwood, only used by the best carvers of the village. Finished with a beautiful dark brown patina. Pls click on the photo to get more info and photos.

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.
