This fine royal ancestor figure is a strong example of Central Nias sculpture.
The tightly carved body possesses great tension and the expressive nature
of the face epitomizes royalty with its proud stare. The sensitively carved
earrings and elaborate crown are proof positive that this example was
the work of a master carver. The patina is fine and aged with its original
pigments. In excellent condition.
