    LUTH called Hasapi
    Culture Toba Batak, North Sumatra, Indonesia
    End of the 19th century - beginning of the 20th century
    Drink
    H: 72.5; Wt: 8; Thickness: 10.5 cm

    Lute with two (missing) sculpted monoxyl strings, with naviform body, flat back and resonator pierced with an elongated sound hole. The short handle, which lacks the two ankles formerly placed in the two circular cavities, represents a carved ankle of an anthropomorphic figure seated on an armchair with backrest. He wears a head covering, a loincloth with slanting incisions. Her fingers are finely individualized, her eyes shaped like an almond.

    This musical instrument was used in religious rituals or courtship displays, accompanied by a second hasapi, a flute and a xylophone.
