In this humble piece of bamboo is to be found Timorese art at its least affected.

These are still made in modern day and used daily by the Atoni people.
Both betal nut and lime powder play an important role in ritual and in peoples daily lives.

This unusual vintage bamboo pot is intricately and expertly carved by hand with a traditional tribal geometric pattern. the wood has a worn gentle sheen and lovely aged patina.
i have not polished it in the name of a true antique museum piece.
Indeed, it still has a small amount of lime powder inside.

It measures 6 1/2 inches : 17 cms long and 6 inch : 15 cms in diameter.
It seems to have the initial "A" carved into the middle border followed by the name "SUAN".

The perfect gift for the man that has everything, or just spoil yourself with a authentic piece of tribal art.

*one of my etsy friends even suggested it would make an ideal holder for her crochet needles. :)
