Subject:Sculpture identification
Posted By: Sculpture identification Tue, Mar 06, 2018 IP: 37.47.201.212

Hello. I have a sculpture shown on the photograph. I need help in identification. According to me, it is a hilt made of bone. Height about 16 cm, width 3 cm. I am asking for help and the possible value of the item. Thank you

Appears to be an Indonesian carving from the island of Bali, probably of cow or water buffalo bone. The iconography and other connotations of the piece aren't clear to me. Looks probably to be no older than the late 20th century.

Best regards,

Bill H.
