Javanese Divider Extra Large



Step back in time with our remarkable Javanese Room Divider, a rare and magnificent piece dating back to the late 19th or early 20th century. Crafted by master artisans, this stunning divider boasts meticulous hand-carved motifs that showcase the rich cultural heritage of Java.

Measuring close to 3 meters in length, 1.6 meters in height, and 4 centimeters in thickness, this enormous divider commands attention with its grand presence. The top portion features a captivating nautical-themed carving, depicting lush rolling waves and triangular motifs that may be interpreted as sails.

Continuing the triangular motif, the midsection of the divider is adorned with intricate geometric patterns, continuing to a mesmerizing interlocking maze-like design on each side. The original decades-old paint has gracefully faded over time, developing a beautiful patina that adds to the divider's authentic charm and character.

In traditional Javanese culture, large dividers like this were commonly found in the longhouses of important village members, serving as room dividers and privacy screens in the spacious interiors. Traditional 'ikat' fabrics would have been draped down the square hole in the middle to create a curtain, adding to the divider's functionality and cultural significance.

Today, this remarkable piece can be seamlessly integrated into modern homes as a standalone conversation piece. Consider converting it into a large mirror or bedhead to infuse your living space with a touch of exotic elegance while honoring its rich history and heritage.
