Mid-20th century - Signs of weathering and insect damage

This large, old and important Asmat head-hunting sculpture comes from the collection of Haji Baso in Kerobokan, Bali.
It is 215 cm tall and portrays an important ancestor who has bagged 3 heads.
As the figure has been carved from a light wood, it has noticeable signs of insect damage, but these are no longer active.

    Je suis vraiment désolée, mais j'ai vraiment fait de mon mieux pour l’emballer aussi soigneusement que possible. Le mettre dans une caisse en bois aurait rendu les coûts d'expédition extrêmement coûteux.
