Royal Ancestor Figure
Northern Nias, Indonesia
Previous Collection: Diane Von Furstenburg
This is a very strong example of a Northern Nias Ancestor Figure. Archaic in style; with an elaborate crown signifying true old world royalty. The expression on the face is mesmerizing; as if in deep contemplation. The dry adze marks and deep patina on the sculpture speak to its early construction. Important to note is the rare size of this example; it is larger than most on the market today. In excellent condition.
This ancestor figure stands 15.5 inches tall.
