Hand Carved Southeast Asia Architectural Fragment. Wood. Indonesia
I was very confident with my assessment of this fragment before I acquired it from a Maryland estate sale.
But…. I am not as confident now. The face and hairdo/covering says Indonesian or Malaysian. The body posture reminds me of an Indian Shiva…. Or a representation of a SE Asian Buddha. It very possibly had been a temple hanging.
It is obviously very old and has appendages missing. It’s also very cool and would make a welcome addition to your den or living room shelf.
20% off for anyone who can definitely identify this piece.
Stand not included.
