Bulul Fire Place Post

Ifugao, Philippines
19th Century

This is a excellent and rare example of a Bulul house-post that is placed aside the hearth of a village hut. The pregnant female figure is beautifully elongated with creative arm placement; as well as a fantastically emotive face. The surface is totally consistent with objects that are kept near the hearth’s of huts, this level of encrustation only happens over generations. In excellent condition.

The figure stands 27.5 inches tall
