Description

This double horn carved bone drilled crescent bead is a 25mm version of one of my most popular bead designs, and makes great festival wear jewelry.

About one inch, it's a mid-size between the 20mm and 30mm versions of this potent bead that I have made for me here in Bali.

Like them, it's carved both sides with a smooth curved surface, that helps give this design its other name, crescent moon.

It's drilled with a 1mm hole top to bottom through the mid-section.

Please note that this listing is for one piece only.

This bead comes in an undrilled version in a separate listing, and is also available in this size in black horn, drilled and undrilled.

The bigger bone version comes undrilled, or with a hole drilled either through the middle or to one side, and is also available in black or brown horn, and in sustainable sawo wood. You'll find all the other listings here -

I generally ship more quickly than the 3-5 days listed in my shipping profile.

BACK STORY
Mekepung or bull races are held in the west Bali regency of Jembrana from July to October each year.

Madurese migrants introduced the sport to celebrate the end of the rice harvest, and it has become a tourist attraction for one of the least visited regencies on the Island of the Gods.

While I'm not a fan of the use of animals for this type of sport and have never actually seen one of these events, the races are said to be thrilling contests between teams of two young water buffalo harnessed to a chariot.

The chariot is ridden by a jockey who holds onto the bulls' tails as they career down a 2km race course, kicking up dust and sweat.

The water buffalo used in these races are said to be treated with great care, and are fed elaborate diets containing "all sorts of wonderful potions and secret ingredients".

Most of the races happen outside the regency capital of Negara, next to a river estuary in the location of Parancak.
