Ancestor Figure

Northern Nias, Indonesia
19th Century

Nias figures of this quality are very rare. Elegantly conceived and absolutely beautiful from every angle. The attention to detail is fantastic; from the royal coiffure down to the delicately carved hands and feet, this is a true masterwork. Important to mention is the fact that this Nias figure has its original pigments; this is hardly ever the case when one is offered on the market today.
This figure stands 14 inches tall.
