This is one of the largest Ataoro figures I have ever handled. While this
figure is conceived in classic form it steps outside the boundaries not
only by its size; but by its overall sculptural quality and attention
to detail. The figure is wearing a beautiful necklace around its neck
as well as a comb in the coiffure; these details suggest this figure was
very important to the clan. The patina is deep and varied, note the lighter
color of the wood around the waist of the figure; this is where a skirt
was attached a long time a go. The figure also has old red fabric tied
around its torso. In excellent condition.
This figure stands 14.5 inches tall.
