Batak Bullet/Shot Horn
From the Batak people in northern Sumatra, and called a ‘paru paru’, this handsome tool held small round bullets, or shot, and is made of a real horn. It has become anthropomorphic with a face carved on one side. The face has a crown and could depict an idealized ruler. Finely incised designs grace the rest of the horn, as well as the wooden top. A custom made iron stand is included.
Size: 7.8 in. x 2.3 in. x 1.9 in.
