Wooden Tribal Female Statue from West Nepal, Early to Mid-20th Century, Mounted

About

Wooden tribal female statue from West Nepal, early to mid-20th century. Mounted on a metal plate. Offered by Bruce Hughes. This wooden figure comes from West Nepal, most probably from the area of the Karnali river system. There is some mystery to these sculptures, which are widely found throughout the region. They could be found placed in a simple shrine near the outskirts of the village, often affiliated with a specif clan group; but they may also have been placed in forest shrines, or near springs or trails, or in temples dedicated to the mysterious masta cult practiced in this area of Nepal. Offerings were made on specific occasions or on specific days in the ceremonial calendar year. This piece depicts a female standing figure, her hands arranged in the traditional Nepali posture of Namaste used in greeting and as a sign of respect. There has been weathering of the lower portion of the figure, particularly the left leg, indicating substantial age. This may indicate that the statue was set into the ground. Condition: The piece is in good condition, except, as mentioned, for the considerable weathering of the lower portion of the piece. Some checking in the wood has occurred, but the wood itself is very dense and the statue as a whole has no structural issues. Dimensions: piece itself - 9 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep by 25.25 inches tall. Stand: 10 inches wide by 6 inches deep. Overall - 10 inches wide by 6 inches deep by 25.5 inches tall.
