Medicine Carrier


The Batak datu or high priest used a variety of containers to store magical substances for ritual potions.

A carved camphor wood stopper depicts riders upon a singa/supernatural protection deity.

The human figures may represent the succession of ritual masters who preceded the datu who owned the container...  

The pointed end of the horn features a seated human figure.
