Keris Bali Luk 11 Unthuk Banyu 0412.

Keris Bali Luk 11 Unthuk Banyu 0412 A very good example of a keris from the island of Bali with the finely repoussed brass handle in a demonic figurine having colored glass insets. Top sheath in the typical Balinese gayaman form, as well as the bottom stem, are made from very well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains.

Long and very sturdy blade with 11 waves or luks has well executed base features or perabots that is deep and typical of the Balinese styles.
 Pamor pattern are arranged in the miring technique of the unthuk banyu or water bubbles variations. It is said to enhance the owner's status and popularity.

Condition: Very good condition.

Age:  Krises are traditionally made without any date stampings or engravings of the makers' name. Although a kris smith or "empu" has his own styles configured together with the dapor and especially the ganjar (cross piece). Obvious age wear and tear, usage, familiarity with forms, motifs and designs, origin and history, mediums and materials used are our guidelines in determining an approximate age. This particular piece, from our experience and knowledge, should go back to the late 19th early 20th century.

Length of blade: 16.5".   Overall length: 23".
