Tropical scenes from a Javanese village are carved in teak wood in long, low formats making them suitable for hanging in shallow spaces above windows, doors or the like. One of the pair shows a festival, with a large gong and children playing. In the other carving, two horses are very reluctantly pulling a cart in a family going to market scene. These pieces are lighthearted and charming, with spirit, movement and rustic appeal. From the early 20th century, they are in excellent condition. Dimensions of carving with gong: height 6” (15.3 cm), width 28” (71.2 cm), depth 1 ½” (3.4 cm). Dimensions of carving with cart: height 6” (15.3 cm), length 32 ½” (82.6 cm), depth 1 ¼” (3.4 cm).
