(Weekly Photo Challenge) : The Mini Kujang

This is about curve.
Kujang (read : koo-junk) is a curved traditional dagger from Sundanese people who concentrated in West Java. It is derived from agricultural civilization as Sundanese is farming society. Kujang has got magical power and it is originally derived from the word kudihyang (Kudi and Hyang (The Almighty) or ujang which means human. It has also got function as talisman. The present form of kujang is supposedly born between 9th and 10th centuries.
In this photo, it’s merely mini kujang broche I bought in Bandung two months ago. I like it and even sometimes wear it.
