Rare collection (5 pieces) of pottery tobacco pipes used by the Rau/Brau people. These were acquired in Laos quite a few years.

These would date from late 19th century to first half 20th century- the ones with reddish clay being the oldest. They have some small chips consistent with old tribal pieces. As far as I know these pipes were unique to the Brau, and would today be consid...

Old wooden statue commemorating a departed loved one. These were kept in the “attic” of a home and were not meant to be free standing. I bought these from an old Australian collection which were collected in the 1980s in West Timor, so these date 1950’s to 1960s. This carved from hard but not particularly heavy woods- good condition with minor checks in the wood. H: 19cm/7.5in.

Good Kayan Orang Ulu gawai rice festival ceremonial mask, circa 40 years old, from Sarawak. I bought this piece in Kuching, Sarawak in 2003. This mask would be held by the teeth on a piece of rattan on the inside. Used only twice a year for rice planting and harvesting festivals (gawai), these gatherings were usually a good excuse for a party and celebration to encourage the spirits to ensure a good harvest. H: 25cm/9.8in and W: 16cm/6.2in.
