Description

A 19th century ceremonial Javanese Keris Sajen.

Antique Keris, made after old 6th century model with short hand forged Wilah (blade), consists of Pamor steel forged in different layers of iron (pattern type: ‘Sanak’) features the Dapur ‘Cundrik Sajen’. (Sajen means ‘offerings’ in Javanese). The Keris Sajen inseparably attached to the iron blade with tiny hilt and ending in small head of a Spirit Figure. Self-made Warangka of painted wood.

Length of the blade, including ‘Pesi’ (tang of the blade): 25.5 cm. (1x)

Note 1: Keris Sajen made to serve as ritual tools. On special occasions, such as important ceremonies, a Keris Sajen is placed in the center of a plate with ritual offerings. In this way, the Keris Sajen is supposed to function as a powerful medium for communication with the spirit world and the higher celestial realms. After the ritual ceremony is over, the Keris Sajen is buried under the ground. It goes without saying, that the many centuries the Keris Sajen has remained under the earth, it has absorbed an enormous amount of mystical energies dwelling in the area. Obviously, the Keris Sajen has thereby acquired immense magical powers. Hence, the true value of these type of Kerises Sajen is priceless, both historically (due to its age) and spiritually (considering the abundance of esoteric energies residing within the blade). And thus, this Keris can be appreciated as an ancient artifact as well as a sacred heirloom.
