A Fabulous BATAK Sharman's hand carved hardwood pillow or headrest. This piece has a beautiful aged patina.....we believe it dates to the late 19th to early 20th century.
IS IT...... a Serpent.... a Snake.... or a Sea Horse, that projects itself from one end ? I'm not sure. At the other end is an open cylinder .....most likely used for burning special magical potions or soporific substances. The piece measures 15 1/2" in length and is 3 1/4" wide. This came to us along with the BATAK Sharmans Medicine Pouch.
