Borneoartifact Item Number: HP 0605
Simple Yet Beautiful, an authentic antique Dayak Kebayan statue from a Kalimantan Dayak family. Outdoor Guardian for Kebayan home, the Guardian holds a paddy plunger (a symbol of good harvesting).
Carved from a single Billion/Ironwood trunk. Kebayan statues are well noted for statues carved from sliced Billion wood trunks, statues are usually flat not roundish like the Kebahans. Some natural lines due to old age, never repaired. Stunning artifact for serious collectors.
