Javanese Divider Large



Step back in time with this 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 an impressive 2.3 meters in length, 1.6 meters in height, and 4 centimeters in thickness, this divider commands attention with its grand presence. The top is adorned with a graceful botanical motif of lush foliage, while below, a circular pattern of repeated flower petals adds a touch of elegance.

The sides feature a captivating maze-like geometric pattern, further enhancing the divider's visual appeal. The original decades-old paint has gracefully faded and developed a beautiful patina over the years, adding to its authentic charm and character.

In traditional Javanese culture, large dividers like this would have been seen in 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 add a touch of exotic elegance to your living space while preserving its rich history and heritage.
