A good point and thanks for that. The problem has been rectified. Thanks also for your kind comments re the collection, and as you say, there is room for more.

This is a very good topic. She is very "warm".
For some reason, it stopped in 2009. Why don't you continue it today?
Perhaps something has changed since that time?

Beautiful Dhas! Nicely displayed. Also like that you are watching the humidity. A big factor in deciding how, or if to show.

Just found out this thread and great to see so many fantastic display of the collections of fellow ethnographic arms maniacs! i wish i know how to display on walls but there are drawbacks if you live in hot tropical countries. They get easily cob webbed and house lizards will soil with their little droppings. And much more difficult to maintain and clean compared to paintings, so I decided to 'display' them in cabinets with glass panels in a room dedicated to my collection. Below are mine.

The Puan isn't dangerous but very tolerant!

Would like to see the mandaus and balatos! Like Kai said, a substantial collection.

Humidity; the worst of enemies, specially for who lives by the sea (up to 90%).
I keep the (shoulder) guns in the 'spare' room, where i have connected a dehumidifier; gun barrels rust so fast. At night i close the room and a time switch starts the device until 08:00 AM.

I'm excited to see how others show their collections. It's something I've been wondering about. So many great displays!
I'm trying to keep mine as tastefully decorative as possible; while I don't currently have to get anyone's approval for how I display them, I don't want to go so hog wild as to frighten anyone off. Although I've already been told my collection makes me look like a serial killer, so maybe I should just go with it.

In the first I'm using brass mounts which include posts and a loop for the sword tip from bytheswordinc.com, which are pretty attractive and work very well. The posts can be easily unscrewed to unmount the swords.

The Moro pieces come down easily by undoing the Velcro strip run between the brass screw eyes at the top.

I love that there are stands for keris. Though they don't seem appropriate for many of the collections in this thread; they only make stands so big.

The stairwell is using the aforementioned brass mounts, plus brass cup hooks, bent to be more accommodating.

And then there's the closet of shame. I really should do better by these pieces!
