Royal Ancestor Figure

Nias, Indonesia
19th Century

This fine central Nias figure is conceived in a stylized form that in profile is elegantly thin. The sculpture is very well balanced with great tension in the body and legs. The elaborate crown and earrings indicate that this figure represents royalty. The patina is deep from years of exposure and use and there are still remains of the figure’s skirt. In excellent condition.

This figure stands 12.5 inches tall.
