Product Description:

Borneoartifact item number: MC 0205 Batak BONE container.

The body(real cow bone, hollow inside) were used for storing traditional medicines and sometimes jewelry.

Batak text motifs (plantation calender) are carved on the horn.

The stopper resembling a Batak man and animal figurine is carved from wood.

Circa 1980. Height: 20 cm / 7.9 inches Width(largest point): 5.5 cm / 2.2 inch Weight: 0.1 kg / 0.22 lb Batak is a collective term used to identify a number of ethnic groups found in the highlands of North Sumatra Indonesia.

Their heartland lies to the west of Medan.

In fact the Batak include several groups with distinct, albeit related, languages and customs (adat). The Toba Batak believe that they originate from one ancestor Si Raja Batak, everyone else descended from him.

A family tree that defines the father-son relationship among Batak people is called tarombo.

Toba Batak are known traditionally for their weaving, wood carving and especially ornate stone tombs.

Their burial and marriage traditions are very rich and complex.

The burial tradition includes a ceremony in which the bones of ones ancestors are re interred several years after death. I will be using Registered Mail, 14 working days worldwide, insurance included.
