Ancestor Figure

Nepal Dolpo Region
19th Century

This figure from the Dolpo region of Nepal is a strong sculpture. The quality of this piece is representative of early examples. The face being created in a flat plane is very expressive and the body is sensitively carved with great tension in the legs. Nature has added a haunting quality by the level of erosion present.

This figure stands 21 inches tall.
