Description

This stunning necklace was hand-carved by village carver Amank in Garut District in Java, in a small village nestled at the foot of Mt Papandayan. It measures approximately 3x1.5 inches, and is hand-varnished. A traditional Sundanese pattern is carved around the owl image. Several types of hand-carved beads, including two types that are hand painted, decorate the lanyard/'chain' which can reach 12 inches in length.

Owls are distributed in many places around the world, and Java is no exception - known locally as the 'ghost bird,' the characteristic calls of the Java's many owl species is essential to the jungle chorus at night. Sadly these supposedly common species are being taken from the wild en masse to suit an illegal trade in 'Harry Potter' birds. The Little Fireface Project is entering its sixth year of continuous surveys of illegal wildlife markets to help end this threat to the the barn owl's existence on Java.

The Little Fireface Project is a conservation charity dedicated to saving Asia’s small nocturnal species, with a focus on slow lorises. We also reach out to bring awareness regarding other obscure mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds. You can find out more about our work at www.nocturama.org.

FAQs

Hand felted slow lorises are available in almost any colour but I need at least a few weeks to prepare them. Sometimes when we are in the midsts of the jungle these orders need to be postponed!
All of our batiks are hand made and they WILL run when washed the first few times. We suggest hand washing and certainly not washing with other light colours. They may even run in the rain if not washed first so do be careful!
Our items are hand made. Sometimes batiks have small bits of dye that give them a rustic look or the painting on a carving may not be a perfect line. These make the items unique and we think extra beautiful!
