Elegant statuette representing a standing... - Lot 87 - Binoche et Giquello

Elegant statuette representing a standing male figure, his short arms clasped to his torso, his body entirely decorated with scarification marks and incised geometric motifs, his face with fine features embellished with a skilfully braided beard and topped with a delicate hairstyle. Entirely covered with gold leaf, this regalia was once part of a notable's treasure. Representing the spirit of the ancestors, this treasure was only seen during the funeral of the dignitary and remained locked in a chest the rest of the time.
