I’m a little late in posting my Valentine’s Day blog, but Valentine’s items are appropriate for wedding, anniversary and engagement gifts through the year.
The first 4 items I posted on last year’s Valentine’s blog – Jan., 2013 are still available, but the large Javanese marriage couple was sold to a museum in South Korea. A similar marriage couple is still available #124 in the Statues section. Another suitable gift could be the following wood panel from Bali. #74
Marriage couples are a very popular theme in Java. The statues below are definitely of the folk art variety. – #128
The following marriage couple puppets are from Java. #147, 148
These Javanese puppets are characters from the Hindu epics. #153, 154
The Javanese puppets below are both men so could be suitable for a gay couple. In java, men wear hats and women don’t. #159,160
This small inexpensive marriage couple is from Java, also. #586
Another small unusual Javanese marriage couple. #587
There are still plenty of beautifully carved marble boxes from Vietnam. #296,297
Happy Valentine’s Day!
