N.B.:
The kris, cherished and venerated, plays an important part in Indonesian culture. A kris is presumed to be imbued with a soul and therefore entitled to food and drink. Therefore every fifth Friday Kliwon of the Javanese calendar a ritual takes place. The kris is cleaned and served with offerings. King Willem I was also in the possession of a kris, gifted to him by the sultan of Madura, Cakra Adinigrat VIII, thankfull for his appointment as commander in the Order of the Dutch Lion. This kris, in beauty comparable to the one offered here, is in the collection of the Rijksmuseum.
