3253: Ritual Dish.
Borneo Island, Indonesia.
Hard wood. L: 11.25" (28.6 cm), W: 7" (17.8 cm), H: 4.75" (12 cm). 19th century or earlier.
The dish has two serpents along the rim, two unidentified animals, one inside the dish, another on one end, and an ogre-like figure at the other end.
The dish has a patina similar to objects left behind in cave shrines, so it is possible it is older than it appears.
From a Dutch collection, the former owner claimed it was from Borneo Island. That is possible, but it may also be from one of the other Indonesian islands.
