Interesting Keris Anthony.

I can see Naga, Kalarau, Winged Lion, Elephant and Turtle.

What is the 6th figure (the one in the middle)?

Cheers,

Anthony, i really do appreciate seeing how this work is done. However, i am afraid this video violates the rules of the forum as it is openly advertising for business saying that they are open for receiving orders and placing their contact info in the video description.
We would certainly welcome photos of your new keris and images of the work in progress. I realize this was not your intention when you posted this, but we just can have an open advert on the page, so i am afraid we will have to delete this post. I hope you understand and start a new thread showing detailed images of your new baby.

Not sure why members haven't commented yet, but i think this is a beautiful new art keris. Very nice level of craft apparent here.
I will admit that i personally prefer more "legitimate" dhapurs, but your pande did a very nice job with this one and i find it quite attractive.
Is the selut ivory? The wood used in the sarong is lovely. Some close-ups of the dress would be appreciated.

Very beautiful art piece indeed but it does not move me much as a kris, and personally I prefer the old blawong behind it
Regards

The wood for warangka is burl wood from sena and ebony gandar. Selut is bone.
