Amulet Figure

Flores, Indonesia
Early 20th Century
Metal alloy

Provenance: Anthony F. Granucci collection, California. By descent to family

Published: The Art of the Lesser Sundas, Fig. 20.
Small Indonesian metal figures are very rare. This female figure is a beautiful example. The distinctive headdress in a topknot formation tapers down the head of the figure. The face is naturalistic and there are hints of subtle decoration above her genitalia. Most likely representing a spirit, these figures were protective agents against various threats.
