The Hindu mythical brother of Hanuman, the Monkey King.
Cirebon, West Java
From a Dutch private collection
Anything similar for sale?
A stylized Bhīma keris hilt, probably originating from Cirebon. It resembles the earlier fully anthropomorphic hilts of the area, but with the body now completely stylized, covered with an eternal knot design. The head still has the curly hair running over part of the back.
It has a brass selut and comes with black custom stand.
