It focuses on the traditional blade patterns or ‘pamor’ that mark these daggers as well as the practical and spiritual purposes which the keris served.

Though the keris was a weapon, it was also put on display, part magical talisman, part marker of social status. Pictured here are two 19th century Indonesian keris daggers, one from Bali and another from Lombok. Both are held in a Balinese keris holder in the form of a demon. The group of daggers on offer in the show are offered for prices ranging from £1000-10,000.

Also on offer are a range of weapons, paintings and artworks with Sikh imagery, carved objects and shields with Islamic calligraphy and iconography.

Based in Warwickshire, Singh holds the exhibition at Cromwell Place in South Kensington.
