Details

The magnificent head of a Sumba horse is sculpted from suar wood to be transformed into a decorative box with a secret. Four pieces link together like a puzzle to hide personal treasures inside this box from Eka.

Horses from the island of Sumba are a cross between Arabian and local horses. Besides being used as a burden animal, livestock, ridden to herd cattle, or used in racing, Sumba horses are also used in weddings as a gift from the groom to the bride's family.

I bought four of these puzzle boxes of various kinds for children on my Christmas list. I am delighted with them! They are well-made and even nicer than they look in the pictures. The kids will be fascinated with them, I know. Thank you to the artist, Eka.
