A Traditional, rare 12 Luk wavy bladed Antique Indonesian Javanese Naga Keris with bone grip, gilded naga and floral motif decorate the pamor. The mendek is set with several small clear coloured stones with small clear stones set into one side of the metal sheath. The metal sheath is embossed with an intricate pattern on one side, and shows traces of gilding. The other side is plain. A few stones are missing on the sheath.
We think this keris similar to this Indonesian Javanese straight blade keris handle and hilt are possibly made from mammoth bone.
