Timor house door 'oda matan'.


19th century. Wood. 147 x 65 cm. Of very heavy wood, these doors were symbolical entrances to the communal house. This house, as in other parts of Southeast Asia, is divided into male and female. This female door, being adorned with a stylized image of a woman, feminine symbols are more often distilled, as they are here, to a pair of breasts above an ornamental panel with labyrinth like spirals. The curved form above the breasts may represent a headhunter's headdress (buffalo horns) which is seen more prominently on the men's doors. (VJ)

Provenance:
Caremans collection, Antwerp;
Important Belgian collection.
