Ancestor Figure

Yuat, Lower Sepik River, PNG
Early 20th Century
Ex: Mark Franklin, San Francisco

This ancestor figure is a sublime example of Yuat artistry; it is a pleasure to view from every angle. Its finely carved torso is surmounted by an expressive face with wonderfully carved features and a pierced septum. This figure has a fine brown aged patina. There is a stabilized age crack in the back, but in otherwise excellent condition.

This figure stands 14 inches tall
