Handsome, yet deadly is how the lots in Cowan’s Tribal and Ethnographic Weaponry and Art sale, would be described. Scarce and sharp, the artifacts representing culture and art from around the world, constitute the auction. Objects, seen and read only in fiction, come to life. Like an attractive curved silver Saudi Jambiya (knife), war clubs from Solomon Islands and even an Africa Mali mask, with elongated faces, rectangular noses, and horns.
A wide selection of Indonesian Keris, made distinct by their beautiful wavy blades and fine handles are among the featured lots. An early 19th century Indian silver dagger with intricate Koftgari decoration throughout, as well as several Nepali kukuri (Khukuri), used during historic wars by the brave Gurkhas- celebrate skillful artisans. Each khukuri comes fitted with beautiful silver and colorful mounts. To go through the tribal experience, register and bid at Cowan’s.
