Dayak Baby Bath Ceremonial Bowl (KG13)


Out of stock

Definitely one of the most unusual and very attractive item that we had found so far. Carved out of one piece of Ironwood, it is very strong and heavy. This huge bowl was used in ceremony where babies are given their bath in special ritual performed by the elders. This ritual must be done before the child grow up and only after this ceremony that the child then allowed to swim in the river. The ritual was believed to protect the child from any kind of harm or any unfortunate event that might occur in the water.
