Default Betel pestles and their handles

It may be of interest to some, I would like to show you two Betel pestles and two handles for such pestles. Other members may also have such pieces to show.

I think they are all from Lombok, possible Bali.

Two modest new members entered the collection.
Both have wooden handles and show the most common motives, a man riding another man (I read somewhere that it's an ironic symbol for upper and lower population) and a bird, sometimes seen with a snake.
