KAL AU – Lime Powder container from the highlands of central West Timor.
This is an unusual example of the skill of the Timorese betel nut/kal au container maker. He decorated the motif with 2 tone red and green colour. Made entirely by hand from bamboo with red-cedarwood plug in the top and bottom. The motif is a well executed hook and rhomb called KAIF in a radiating diamond motif. Each ‘hook’ represents a member of the carvers clan and each ‘dot’ a totemic guardian spirit.
