  • PRICE: $2500
  • DESCRIPTION: This original village bench is a one of a kind handsome beauty from Java. Hand crafted from one solid plank of teak wood (minus the legs), by village artisans in Indonesia decades ago. Traditionally found in villages in Java, and locally known as “layek,” these primitive benches were the perfect spot for an afternoon break during the heat of the day. It’s inclined design is the “perfect chaise” and its handsome patina and character is the result of much use and Mother Nature. At some point in it’s life, a figure of a Wayang character was carved into the top portion of the bench, making it an even more unusual and unique find. (Wayang are characters in traditional Javanese puppet theater based on stories from the traditional Hindu Epic “The Mahabharata”.)  See last photo for wayang figure. Organic rustic texture and patina throughout.
