In Java, these statues are referred to as “Loro Blonyo” which can be translated as ‘inseparable couple’. The tradition of creating these delightful sculptures originated in Yogyakarta and dates back centuries. To the Javanese, they symbolize harmony and hospitality.
Genuine Javanese “Loro Blonyo” wood carvings from this period in such good condition are exceedingly rare.
