Ask a Question

Wooden Sculpture / Carving of Standing Figure on decorative base from Sumba Island, Indonesia (circa 1960s - 1970s). The island tribal creators of works like this one are anonymous. Often the age, origin and even use of the objects are unknown as well. Notwithstanding some of this ambiguity, the works are aesthetically compelling and this intriguing figure has the air of a tribal elder. Carved from a wood that is red on the inside, it is a decorative figure from a culture and traditional religion which includes both ancestral worship and deity worship. In good vintage condition commensurate with age. Upon request, a short video clip of this piece may be provided.
