Amulet Figure

Flores, Indonesia
19th Century

While this amulet is small in scale it is extremely large in sculptural power. The attention to detail is simply fantastic; with delineated hands and feet and negative space between the body. The eyes are inset with metal, as well as a metal insertion into the back of the head; this could be to enhance the power of the charm. The patina is deep from handling and use. It is important to note that Flores sculpture, especially diminutive finely carved figures are extremely rare. In excellent condition.

This figure stands 3.25 inches tall.
