Mid-20th century - Good condition - See photos
This figure carved from ironwood is a hampatong from Central Borneo. It depicts a member of the police or military and is therefore called ‘patung polisi’. ‘Patung’ stands for figure and ‘polisi’, as you would expect, police - so, translated, it is ‘police figure’. It is highly probably that the deceased person being honoured with this sculpture was a police officer or member of the military.
The sculpture weighs more than 9 kg and is 77 cm tall and with the position of his arms more than 40 cm wide.
