KAL AU/Lime Powder container Bone Animist

This is a beautiful example of the skill of the Timorese Lime Powder/kal au container maker. 

In this lime powder container the creator has constructed a head with pot on top that acts as the plug and a teak wooden base. The bone is using the left overs of last night dinner of Goat or Cow. These items are used by everyday Timorese people and made in 2 specialist carving villages by BONE CARVERS

The motif, that has been skillfully worked into this most difficult of mediums, is a modern example of the Timorese crocodile motif that tells of the carvers clan and totemic guardian spirits.

219cm /7.5" tall.


Selecting, offering, cutting, chewing and spitting of Pua holds high social bearing in the structure of Timorese Society and the Atoni have created a spectacular and varied betel nut accessory or paraphernalia around it. Containers to hold the Betel and Sirih and Tobacco, different ones to hold the lime powder, cutters and mashers to help you keep right on chewing when your teeth are too worn down and bags to keep it all in.
