Conceived in classic hunkered position; this example stands out because of its rare size; it is smaller than most examples. The face on this Hampatong is very expressive and the post is beautifully decorated showing the great skill of the carver. The patina is weathered and there are traces of lykin from outdoor exposure. In very good condition.
This figure stands 15.5 inches tall.
