A great example of the skill of the Timorese betel nut / kal au container maker. Made by hand from bamboo using the natural bamboo join for the base and a hand-carved traditional lopo hut as a plug for the top. The motif has interesting bands of flower motif atop of a styalised geko.

20cm x 8″ tall.

52g  /  1.8oz.

Timor has elevated betel nut chewing to ritual heights. Most men and many women enjoy a chew often starting in the morning and continuing throughout the day. Betel nut accessories range from containers for the betel, the asparagus like fruit or leaves and tobacco to the more elaborately carved lime powder containers. There are cutters and crushers for when your teeth are too eaten away from the lime to be able to break open your betel and beautiful bags for everything to be stashed in.
