These teak hangers are from Solo on the Indonesian island of Java and date to the early 19th century. Painted carvings of Hanuman, the heroic white monkey from the Southeast Asian epic, “The Ramayana,” sit atop long curved tails that form textile hangers. Fabrics can be draped so the Hanuman figures face front or to the sides. The hangers have holes at the top end so they can be either suspended or affixed directly to a wall. (See a similar set of hangers with different carved figures by entering 06-81 in the search box, upper right of this screen.) These hangers, while sturdy and in overall good condition, show evidence of age and long use with some wear on the paint and a chipped foot on one of the Hanuman figures. Dimensions: height 12 ½” (32 cm), width when turned to the side 5 ¼” (13.5 cm), depth (or width when turned to the front) 1 ½” (4 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT SILKROAD1.COM
