Amulet Figure

Benuaq, East Borneo, Indonesia
Early 20th c

Provenance: Private American collection
Published: Dayak Amulets: Miniature Sculptures from Borneo, 2016, fig. 26.

Conceived in a classic seated position, this example stands out because of its naturalism. The face is very expressive and beautifully carved showing the great skill of the carver. Straddled onto the back of the figure is a stylized baby. The patina is layered and dark from years of extensive handling. In very good condition.
