  • DESCRIPTION: This handsome old Wayang panel is a wonderful piece of traditional utilitarian art from Java. Often referred to as kris panel or keris board, it originally hung in the home to hold and display a Javanese dagger known as “keris” or “kris.” Decorated with carved reliefs of wayang characters and a fading painted patina, the decades of age and wear have only added to the overall allure of this panel. Holes are still visible in the back, where twine was used to secure the ceremonial sword to the keris board. Handcrafted by a local artisan from a solid piece of teak wood, decades ago for utilitarian purposes, this panel is now a unique piece of one-of-a-kind art for your home. Naturally aged patina – rustic character and texture throughout.
