19th C. Southeast Asian Wood Coconut Grater - Zoomorph

Lot 0102 Details

Description
**Originally Listed At $250**

Southeast Asia, Thailand or Cambodia, ca. late 19th to early 20th century CE. A hand-carved wooden coconut grater in the form of an abstract zoomorphic creature with a bulky, tubular body and two sets of fused, attenuated legs. The spindle-shaped head has a central carination perhaps indicative of a mane, and from the mouth protrudes a serrated, S-shaped grating tool. Traces of brown, white, and red pigment on the body and head suggest that this tool was at one time painted with bright colors. Size: 26.25" L x 5.125" W x 9.4" H (66.7 cm x 13 cm x 23.9 cm)

Provenance: ex-Dave De Roche collection, Piedmont, California, USA
