Northern Luzon, Philippines
Previous Collection: Thomas Jaffe, New York City
Headhunter’s armlets such as these are very rare; most of them on
the market today are fabrications. This fine example is completely original,
from the Boar’s tusks to the tufts of animal hair; this example
epitomizes the warrior spirit. The figure attached is very well carved
in the classic hunkered position. The patina is deep and consistent with
old examples. In excellent condition.
This object stands 9 inches height.
