Ancestor Figure

Tanimbar, Indonesia
Early 20th Century
Ex Collection: Irwin Hersey, NYC

This is a classic example of Tanimbar art. The body of the figure is well carved with great negative space. The patina is deep and appears to have red pigments which most likely were rubbed on the piece during ritual practice. The figure is in excellent condition.

This figure stands 8 inches in height.
