Keris Madura Miniature
Size: Miniature 24cm sheathed, display case 34cm x 17.5cm x 4.5cm
13 lok or waves define the Keris Madura’s sinuous blade, further enhanced by its elaborately carved sheath. 24K gilding embellishes the miniature. A keyhole slot in the display case’s back allows for wall mounting.
The keris is a dagger unique to the Malay cultures of Southeast Asia, with renderings depicting the weapon dating to 825 CE. Asymmetry is this ancient weapon’s distinguishing feature and, although different styles exist, it is the wavy blade that is instantly recognisable. Today, the keris is a potent symbol of the history and culture of the Malay world.
Included is a 2.5cm x 6.5cm engraving plate for personalisation.
