Ulu Sumbawa Squatting Figurine 0515.

Ulu Sumbawa Squatting Figurine 0515 - From the eastern island of Sumbawa, this figurine hilt form maybe similar to Batak, Sumatra, but the rounded base of the handle is a characteristic similar to the Bugis kerdas form, and hence the piece is from Sumbawa island, where Bugis influences are strong. Due to its close proximity, it also has the figural and animistic influences from Bali and Lombok.

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 18th century.

Dimensions: Please see top left hand corner picture.

Price:- US$190 excluding shipping.
