Altar Figure
Sumba, Indonesia
19th Century
This is a very intriguing terra cotta alter piece. The imagery is of an enigmatic figure hunched over in an almost fetal position with arms and legs tucked into the body. The facial features are obscured from wear; and the darkened areas are worn away in places exposing the reddish terra cotta underneath.
This alter piece stands 3.9 in tall.
