Batak shaman medicine container #32 (IMC032)

This superb container for magical substances, guri guri, is made from incised cow bone topped with a stopper whose intricate woodcarving depicts a Batak figure riding on a serpent Singa, often described as part human and part seahorse. The incision on the outside of the container showed a calendar, marked to represent the days of use and non-use for the tube's contents.
The stopper is held secure by a bamboo peg that goes through perforations in it and the container.
