An elaborately and preciously executed work. The heavy, straight blade with an expressive pamor structure, partly wavy with accentuated islands and eyes. Two elephant trunks as well as a protruding, thron-shaped ganja. The gilded Selut shows ornamental applications with densely rowed blossoms. The wooden handle on the other hand is rather simple, with two decorative images carved in deep relief. Finely curved warangka with horizontal grain, the pendok with floral decorations. The reverse shows a crest-like motif with the sun and the moon.
