Valentine's Day

I bought these on eBay for Kelvin for Valentine's Day. Two old medicine/herb containers cow bone and horn c1960. Hand carved buffalo horn top with cow-bone base with waxy natural patina typical of  Sindu Village, Lombok Island, Indonesia. So the seller said in his detailed description. They are part of the Rick Bennet collection of South East Asian and Melanesian tribal artifacts that is being sold on eBay for the next few months. Rick had a store in Brisbane some years ago and I bought a few pieces way back then. Oh how I loved that store. It was like an Aladin's cave. Kelvin is blind as most of you will know by now and I love buying him sculpture, actually anything 3D, so he can experience it through his hands. I also thought that he would get a kick out of the shamanistic connection. Haha! He got their Valentine's Day meaning straight way. He says he is going to store his Spanish Fly in them! Happy Valentine's Day my love even if I am a day early.
