Wooden Sculpture or Carving of Sitting Figure from Sumba Island, Indonesia

About

Wooden sculpture or carving of sitting figure from Sumba Island, Indonesia, (circa 1960s-1980s). 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 riveting and this calming figure clearly 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 fair vintage condition commensurate with age. Upon request, a short video clip of this piece may be provided. Dimensions: H 26.5 cm (10.4") W 4.5 cm (1.8") D 5.0 cm (2.0").
