About

Large Saneh (architectural panel) from the exterior of a Torajan granary (Alang). Constructed of several heavy wood planks, the surface carved in low relief with traditional geometric auspicious patterns including the Pa'tangke lumu or "moss branch" motif, the raised borads with five stylized buffalo heads. The ornamentation was meant to drive away evil influences; however, the buffalo is also a symbol of wealth and prosperity.
Toraja, South Sulawesi Island.
Indonesian Archipelago.
