Keris Hilt from Sulawesi This is a wooden keris hilt (also known as a “kris), from Sulawesi, Indonesia. The carving is a classic bird motif. The piece is not terribly old, and while the dramatic “beak” of the bird clearly renders this piece inappropriate for a working knife, it also makes for a dramatic visual. A great display piece.
