The Myth and The Magic of Keris

Weapons have played one of the most important roles in human history… from the longbows of the British to the long range of the canons of the Ottomans and the ‘nihonto’ (sword) of the Japanese samurai. For the people of the Malay Archipelago, the Keris, an asymmetrical dagger, represents more than just its effectiveness in battle. Each Keris is seen as a living objects… a conduit to another realm, and thereby bestowing its owner with ‘supernatural’ powers. Come on a journey and discover the mysterious world of kings and worriors… of heroes and villains… of myth and legend. Learn how a ‘special’ keris blade is created, and listen to the unique stories and beliefs of a distinctive culture. Today, the Keris stands as a symbol of peace, wisdom and justice to the modern  Malays.
