Get to know heirlooms and names

Keris, including stabbing weapons found in Southeast Asia, especially in the archipelago. Talking about keris, means talking about the lives of the people of Java, Madura, Bali, Southeast Nusa Tenggara, Sulawesi and other regions, such as Sumatra, the Malay Peninsula and the Philippines.
In subsequent developments, due to several factors such as geographical conditions, and environmental influences. Different forms and functions of the keris as stabbing weapons have appeared in various eras and various regions.
Kris in the past, especially in Javanese society is supported by cultural encouragement that ancient Java was only complete when it had a guesthouse (house), a woman of 9 wives), turangga
(horse / vehicle), kukila (bird. That means you can enjoy beauty / recreation), and suspicious (a kris to defend yourself and the country). For Javanese keris as a landhep prick weapon can be interpreted its meaning as intelligence, to clairvoyance, sharpness of feeling, intuition, and science, as said solyom in his book the world of the Javanese kris
 (1988; 5).

The expressions and meanings as mentioned above, show that, the keris has been freed from the limit of its function as a practical weapon in the life of the Javanese people. Keris is no longer merely a prick weapon but has developed its function into a meaningful sign. A sign that can be used to express or express values, philosophical concepts and / or life that is considered noble.
A keris maker is traditionally called a master (empu is also to refer to ahi in other cultural fields). Makers of warangka and carving are called mranggi. The kris blade without any other part called the kris furniture, is considered incomplete. When the kris is seen as a whole with its scales, it will seem harmonious unity between people who are depicted riding a boat across the Ocean of life.
Likewise, if observed keris decoration, both on carving (upstream). Warangka and the wilah (blades) and pendhok is a high work of art that requires expertise and perfect skills.

Discussion about the meaning and symbol on the keris is closely related to dhapur which means the provisions of the form or form. The treasures of percussion know two common forms of keris, namely straight and curved, as well as detailed equipment or details that are propped up.
Thus, a straight kris or a certain luk with a particular piece has a certain dhapur name. Timbul Haryono, in his book Performing Arts and Fine Art in the perspective of Archeology of Art (2008: 50) said that one of the things that makes a dagger surpass other types of sharp weapons is that a dagger has prestige. Pamor in the form of layers of metal colored lighter than the color of metal iron material sticking to the left and right of the blade adorn the surface of the keris.
