~Sold to the U.S., thanks a bunch!~ $320.USD 

Very fine ikat and embroidered patterned men’s sarong from Timor Island. The weaving is in three panels on this piece and is exceptionally fine and supple. In excellent condition with a few minor frays on the selvedge only and a few small ink stains. Although by no means an antique, this is a genuine “cultural” item and not made for the “tourist market”- a realistic dating would be between 40 and 60 years old. The embroidery (which is finished on both sides) is done with silk an ...click for details

The example here was most likely used in that manner. It is in very fine condition, and measures 13" in diameter. Early 20th century. Provenance: Mr. and Mrs. Ed Lasky ...click for details

Further provenance on request 

This Goli dance whip measures approximately 32" when extended. The braided leather portion is completely intact, not at all typical for such an old and well-used object.

The surface shows an encrusted, fatty patina with areas of dryness, sacrificial matter, and numerous root-like growths attached.

From the Niger River Delta of Nigeria come these peculiar and somewhat macabre articulated face masks.

Beautiful and intriguing Sumba men’s hinggi tunic with rare “pagi- sore” morning-afternoon design.
