ANTHROPOMORPHIC FIGURE SPOON

Timor Island, Indonesia

First half of the 20th century

Coconut

H.: 16; L.: 6.5 cm

Important spoon carved in a coconut whose handle and spoon are adapted to the curvature of the fruit.

The large spoon gives rise, without unhooking of material, to the handle whose edges are serrated symmetrically. It ends by thickening so as to form a second spoon. It is carved on the back of an expressive face with an open mouth and eyes included in large eyelids. The nose, of rectangular section, is short and fine. He seems to have medium long hair, completed in two strands.
