Tropical scenes from a Javanese village are carved in teak wood in long, low formats making them suitable for hanging in shallow spaces above windows, doors or the like. One of the pair shows a festival, with a large gong and children playing. In the other carving, two horses are very reluctantly pulling a cart in a family going to market scene. These pieces are lighthearted and charming, with spirit, movement and rustic appeal. From the early 20th century, they are in excellent condition.
