Abhaya Asian Antiques
Extremely rare grinding stone from the late Neolithic, Tham Hua Phu Culture (100 BCE-100 CE) located along Mekong River near Luang Prabang, Laos. I have been collecting ancient stone tools for many years and this is the only mortar I have ever seen. This is a firm attribution as I personally purchased these direct from local villagers near the site. Perfect original condition. A very Zen little piece which could still be used for any budding alchemists out there...
