Original Works of Art
Painted Balinese spice lid made of bamboo and rotan. Local name; tutup saji
1920-1940
Rare object. The Tropen Museum in Amsterdam has many comparable objects but only one painted.(like this item) This bamboo lid/cover was used to keep the insects away from the food. One can clearly see the creativity of the Balinese people in this object. No need for decoration maybe for other people, but for the Balinese important enough to paint colorful figures on this fragile cover.
