19th Century Balinese Hand-Carved and Painted Wooden Sculpture of a Young Dancer

$2,800

About

A tall antique Balinese hand-carved and painted wooden statue from the 19th century on black base. Hand-made on the island of Bali, Southern Indonesia during the 19th century, this wooden sculpture captures our attention with its lively attitude and colorful finish. Standing on a carved base mounted on a black pedestal, a richly dressed young man is dancing. Perfectly balanced, the sculpture is built around the diagonal created by his two extended arms. Wearing ornate clothes with complementing green and red colors highlighted by golden tones, the young man is topped by a side headdress echoing the color of his pantalon. Boasting a nicely weathered patina particularly visible on the face, the sculpture is accented with scrolling foliage and jewelry reminiscent motifs. Its tall proportions and ornate depiction will make this 19th century hand-carved Balinese sculpture an excellent addition to any home, where it will be a great conversation piece!.
