Madura Keris

Indonesia
#W-39
This Madura keris has a very old blade, beautifully sculpted "wrangka" (hilt crosspiece) and fine old staghorn hilt.

Keris daggers are widespread throughout the greater Malay and Indonesia cultural world. The blades are made of iron and nickel (often of meteoric origin) and are highly valued as powerful talismans. The supernatural powers associated with them span everything imaginable: attracting wealth, power, luck, influence, love; warding off black magic, jealousy, fire, poison, violence, lightning strikes; or making one a good dancer, able diplomat or soldier. Very old keris blades of known provenance can be extremely costly. Blacksmiths who are expert in forging keris are respected and known for their mystic powers.
