Tunggal Punaluan




Batak shamans staff; 63" high.
The Batak live in the northern part of Sumatra around Lake Toba and the priest's staffs are called
tunggal punaluan. They usually feature a single figure on horseback or narrow figure tiers. This staff is unusual in that it has a standing single figure. (Indonesia, Sumatra, circa 1900)
