This is a traditional warrior jacket from the Indonesian island of Sulawasi. It has made a fine display in my home for more than twenty years. The outer layer is shaped buffalo bone and makes a fine defense against arrows. The hat is carved wood with buffalo horn and feathers.

51″ tall, the width of the hat is 30″.

Condition: Please review the photos carefully. PLEASE NOTE: Solid shape.


I have been collecting artifacts and religious objects for many years, specializing in Asian and European vintage carvings. Don’t hesitate to ask about other stock that I might have that is not listed here.
