Leti Island; Indonesia
Ex: Antonio Casanovas, Madrid
Published ‘Maluku’ 1997 (Figure 1)
This is a superb example of Leti Island sculpture. The figure is not only
stylistically rare but wonderfully conceived. The face is carved with
great expression; it seems to exude the power of the ancestors. From its
naturalistic torso to the over sized hands carrying the bowl; this sculpture
has great flow and rhythm; a true balance between naturalism and stylization.
This piece has acquired a deep encrusted patina from generations of use.
In excellent condition.
This figure stands 6 inches tall.
