This special piece comes from the island of Lombok in Indonesia and is made in wood by local artisans, crafted with ancient techniques.
In the area traps like this have been used for centuries to capture small song birds, loved for their voices and as status symbols. In fact, they’re the most popular pets in Indonesia and a saying goes: “A man is only considered a real man if he has a house, a wife, a horse, a dagger and a bird”. Birds are believed to be sacred connections between the earth and the sky, bonding the human and spiritual world, bringing enlightenment, hope, and wisdom.
The trap comes complete with a black metal stand and its story printed out for you inside a beautiful envelope.
