Ancestor Figure
Ata Oro, Indonesia, 19th century
Previous Collection: Irwin Hersey, New York

This figure is a very early example. Conceived in “cubist style”, with great care taken creating the finer details on the face, and body. It’s in excellent condition, with a untouched deep and encrusted patina. The original cotton loin cloth and fiber suspension cord are also still attached.
The head and arms swing slightly to the right, creating an elegant sense of motion.

This figure stands 5.5 inches tall.
