Food Ladle

Ifugao, Northern Luzon, Philippines
Early 20th Century

Provenance: Old German collection

The handle of this ladle is in the form of a standing female. The figure’s body and limbs are carved in simple yet bold forms and its face is both expressive and powerful. These are the traits one should look for on early Ifugao sculpture. The patina is both varied and encrusted, with signs of extensive use. The bowl is deeply carved and has a thin age crack. Otherwise in very good condition.
