This is a wonderful old carved Black Horn Rice Scoop with a Carved Face and Animal that comes from Indonesia. Genuine Buffalo Horn Pacific. Spoons and scoops bare all the different tones and shadows a buffalo horn can have. The buffalo horn as a material has a beautiful transparency and veins of different browns (when you look at it in the sunlight) reminiscent of turtle shell. These are unique, superb and decorative primitive tools as well as being extremely practical. They wash easily. This piece was hand-carved very intricately out of one buffalo horn in Indonesia and carries great traditional significance as both the buffalo and rice, that these used to serve, were essential sources of sustenance for the people, and so revered. The crafting of a rice-scoop from buffalo horn was a testament to the significance of both these forces of nature that the islanders depend on. It is not only an ornamental artifact but so useful if you wish to utilize it. This would be a fabulous item for your collection.
Shows some age, some discoloration, but in good condition.
