THE EMAS SERTALI COLLECTION | as home decoration

This collection entails the golden jewelry worn by the people of North Sumatra, the Batak Karo people during important ceremonies such as a wedding. With the Karo house and the buffalo as the most important symbols in their adornments, it is meant to protect from evil spirits and bad luck in traditional beliefs.  The colours used in Karo designs are red, white and black. The red signifies a zest for life, a 'get-up-and-go', the colour seen in traditional clothes used in weddings, black the colour of death, and white, the colour of God's holiness.

These pieces in the ArteGia collection are dated from the 20th century and typically handmade with fine filigree decorations. The jewelry was worn both by men and women and made of silver gilt.  Nowadays, we include metal stands to beautifully portray the pieces as home decorations.
