This magnificent comb is used in rituals by the local people of the western Indonesian Islands of Sumatra and Java.
Engraved by hand this comb is made out of the buried remnants of ancients reefs located in the mountains of the Bukit Barisan. This region ranges from central to southern Sumatra and the mountains of western and eastern Java.
All pieces are traditionally handcrafted which is why no two pieces are the same. Each has a slight difference in size, shape and/or color contributing to the uniqueness and originality of each beautiful piece.
This piece measures 17 cm in length and 23cm in height, stand inclusive.
