21st century, Indonesia - non-CITES species

Completely engraved large mother of pearl shell, very intricate. The carving into the shell is that of two birds of paradise in flight. As you can see on the pictures, the shell is very versatile regarding what it looks like depending on light. The pictures with the orange hue have been taken with the sun shining from behind the shell. The shell really comes to life when placed in front of a window for example.

The shell was engraved by Balinese craftsmen, who have mastered the art of carving.
Comes with black metal stand.

Approximate measurements:
Width of shell: 15 cm
Height, including stand: 25 cm

Disclaimer: Please be aware that this lot contains mother of pearl. Some regulations are in place regarding the import of mother of pearl into the USA. Please check prior to bidding. This shells full name is freshwater mussel shell.

    onder "sculptuur-brons" verstaat een normale sterveling iets anders dan deze aaneengelaste en gepolijste plaatjes..., ik had beter moeten weten-of-ik had door de expert beter ingelicht kunnen worden..
