Antique Hand-Carved and Painted Indonesian 20th Century Wooden Puppet Show Sign

$890

About

An Indonesian hand-carved wooden puppet show sign with red and black painted accents from the early 20th century. This Indonesian early 20th century sign was hand-carved in Indonesia for a puppet show. This tall panel is entirely carved in low-relief and enhanced by red and black painted accents. The sign depicts two traditional Indonesian puppets carved with many exquisite details such as their clothes and jewelries. In the upper triangular section, a house is carved, perhaps the backstage. Foliages complete these adornments. Thanks to its traditional and impressive aspect, this early 20th century Indonesian hand-carved puppet show sign would be an unusual decorative item in most rooms, perhaps in a den where its combination of elegance and exoticism would add an original touch.
