3548: Ritual Knife Handle.

Batak. Sumatra Island, Indonesia.
Hardwood. H: 3.9" (9.9 cm).
Aristocratic figure sitting in a European style chair and wearing a European style hairstyle, disignating his high status and connection to the colonial authority.
The "tree-of-life" motif on the back of the chair connects the figure to his animist past.
