Pig Stick Tun Tun

Iban, Dayak Borneo
19th Century

Previous Collection: Irwin Hersey; New York City
This is a fantastic Pig Stick. The carving quality of the figure is superb and while many examples out there today have a plain undesigned stick extension, this Tun-Tun is ornately carved by probably one of the best carvers in the area. From years of use and exposure this Pig Charm has acquired a fine encrusted surface. In excellent condition.
This piece stands 20.5 inches tall.
