Indonesian Medicine Box Fantastic Sea Creature
Unique and beautiful describe this fantastical seahorse medicine container from Indonesia. Entirely hand made by using a complex lost wax process. It is a composition white brass or bronze like metal. It opens to hold medicine. Seahorse has human figures on it, to my understanding this is meant for protection. Piece is 5 1/2" long and heavy cast. A great piece of Folk art.
