Ancestor Figure

Leti, Indonesia 19th century
previous collection
Irwin Hersey, NYC

An exceptional example of quality for its type, this figure is a very rare find. The undulating flow of the body has a lyrical and dynamic appearance. The patina is a medium brown and condition is very good, with one small break at the top of the crown on the figure head. Underneath the base is a peg where the figure would have fit into an altar.

The height is 7.5 inches.
