Provenance: Collected by Captain Haug, ship captain of the Hamburg South Seas Expedition, in 1909. Ex collection Linden Museum, Stuttgart, Museum inventory number 61550. Loed and Mia Van Bussel, Amsterdam. Private New York City collection

This dynamic sculpture has great presence. With its powerful expression and exceedingly large headdress, this figure commands attention. Its posture is filled with tension and the spirit of the figure can be felt by just gazing into its face. This figure has a very important and early provenance. It is in excellent condition.
