Item details

This Little Hantu owl carved bone bead is sweet, petite, and sure to wing its way into your heart.

Hantu means ghost in the Indonesian language and the owl is referred to as burung hantu - ghost bird.

He joins the little elephant, little bat, and little bunny, and Bali-style bee in my miniature menagerie bead collection.

The hole running through the bead from the top of the head and out through the tail is about 1.5mm in diameter.

You won't find this sweet little bead anywhere else because it's exclusive to Indounik, as are many of the designs featured here in my Etsy shop.

Please note that these are stock photos and this is not the bead you will be purchasing. The beads are as much alike as is possible when done by hand. I've sold many of these, and he always gets five stars.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment.

Size: Approx 18mm (L) x 10mm (W)
Thickness: Approx 9mm
Weight: Approx 2 grams
Pieces per pack: 1
Colour: White, ivory (putih)
Material: Bovine bone - cow bone, carved with a 1.5mm hole. The bone used in Indounik products is sourced from the neighbouring Indonesia island of Java where it's a bi-product of the meat industry.
Shipping: This item will be shipped from Bali, Indonesia, via registered post with a tracking number, and you will almost certainly have to sign for it upon delivery. It will be well packaged to protect it, and the cost of the pack is included in the shipping fee. I generally ship more quickly than the 3-5 days listed in my shipping profile.

If you love our feathered friends then you might like to visit or even volunteer on Nusa Penida, an small island just off Bali that's been transformed into a bird sanctuary that is pivotal in saving the critically endangered Bali Starling.

The sanctuary is run by the Balinese non-profit Friends of National Parks Foundation which also runs the Bali Wildlife Rescue Center in Tabanan, and works to preserve wildlife habitat in Kalimantan, Borneo.

You can also visit the Bali Bird Park, home to one of the world's finest collections of Indonesian birds.

The park is set in two hectares of landscaped botanical gardens, including more than 2000 tropical plants.

The Park plays a key role in protecting and conserving Indonesia’s endangered birdlife, including the Bali starling.

Burung Hantu (Indonesian Children's Song)

Matahari terbenam hari mulai malam
Terdengar burung hantu suaranya merdu
Hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu
Hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu.

English translation:
The Owl
The sun is setting, it is getting late,
Owl sound can be heard, it is melodious...
Hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu
Hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu hu.
