In stock

Large figure, depicting three ancestors one another’s shoulder. Unusually finely carved for a Timorese artifact, in style it reminds hampatongs or some other Borneo figures. The 3 human figures have very different expressions: the one on the top looks calm and seraphic, with crossed harms, the one in the middle looks very happy while the one on the bottom expresses awe and astonishment.
