The legend of Coco de Mer begins on the Seychelles islands, where ancient tribes couldn’t account for how these seeds would arrive on shore. They were seen as rare artifacts that only the king could possess, hero men could be gifted, and cherished as sacred objects by all. This Half Coco de Mer was found in Borneo, Indonesia and fitted with a custom, handmade bronze stand.
