Description

This Buddha head blue ceramic incense stick holder features a simple, stylized design.

A peaceful piece!

It was crafted in Bali, Indonesia, where Buddhism and other religions have had a big influence in shaping the type of Hinduism practised by most of the island's 4.2 million inhabitants.

Please see my final photo for a better idea of the proportions of this piece.

I also have it available in a modest range of other colours.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment.

AT A GLANCE:
Size: Approx 57mm (L) x 38mm (W) - about 2.24 inches x 1.5 inches
Thickness: Approx 19mm
Weight: Approx 36 grams
Pieces per pack: 1
Material: Fired clay, ceramic glaze
Colour: Blue
Shipping: This item will be shipped with adequate packaging to protect it from damage and packaging is included in the shipping fee. It will ship from Bali, Indonesia, by registered post with a tracking number, and you will almost certainly have to sign for the package upon delivery. Please convo me for a quote on shipping bigger quantities. If you are in the US or Canada, shipping six of these pieces would cost you about $10, a little less if you are elsewhere. A dozen would cost you about $15 to ship to the US or Canada but please note I would need to create a reserved listing for you with the shipping adjusted.

BACK STORY:
Bali is the biggest Hindu outpost outside of India but it's a hybrid form of the religion that incorporates elements of Buddhism, animism, and even Chinese Confucianism.

This religion is practised by more than 90 percent of Balinese as well as some residents of Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, and Lombok, the little island to Bali's east. Together they represent only about 3% of the population of Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation state.

What might not be so widely known is that in Java, once predominantly Hindu, a substantial number of Muslims follow a non-orthodox, Hindu-influenced form of Islam known as Agama Jawa.

Crafting beautiful ornaments and jewelry pieces from animal bone is a time-honoured tradition among many of the world's cultures, including several of the diverse ethnic groups scattered through the Indonesian archipelago.
