Ancestor Figure

Madagascar, Africa
19th Century

This is a dramatic example of a Sakalava figure. The sculpture is strong from all angles and has great tension in the legs. The beauty of the figure is enhanced by its extremely eroded surface. Many of these figures are either far too eroded to appreciate the art or not magical enough from erosion, this figure has the perfect balance.

This ancestor figure stands 27 inches in height.
