My main interest is in North Sumatran weapons of State / Status. These weapons in Aceh often have crowns.
The website of John T. Crosby about the Peudeung has an interesting photo with a lot of crowns: http://home.comcast.net/~jtcrosby/Aceh.html
Recently I found out that these came from the collection of a forum member: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...highlight=atjeh
and that I actually own two of the pieces that are shown in the photo!
For me a reason to revisit the theme of crowns and ask you to share you variation on Aceh crowns on sikin/rencong!
Here is a start with my rencong with crowns. Will try to make a picture later on including the sikins and maybe some items from the collection of a friend.
