Rare Type Indonesian Kris (K2253)

Rare Type Indonesian Kris. The watered blade is 13 ½” long and has an area 5” from the hilt where the blade parts as (see through rivulets) giving the impression of running water at the hilt. There is a chiseled “effigy” of a deity? There is an iron statue of a figure of a man with hands clasped together and the face gives the impression of prayer or deep thought. The sheath is more typical of the usual style seen on a kris (or keris). There is a taped note on the sheath (Kirs Majapahit from Java 17th). Over many years we have sold at least 300 kris, but never had one like this. It is a bit pricey but it is really different and very well made. Comments are welcome!
