OLD KORWAR-LIKE CUBIST MIMIKA ANCESTOR FIGURE

Origin: Indonesia Irian Jaya, Mimika people     (Provenance: Found in an old New England collection)

Period/Date:  At least 1940's possibly older

Materials:  Reddish Hardwood

Description:  This Mimika figure is the most Korwar-like example I've seen.  The abstract figure is seated with elbows resting on the knees and hands holding a vertical post connected at the chin.  It has carefully formed relief-carved ears with all the familiar and classical Mimika features and motifs.  Look at the amount of "negative space" in this impressive example as well as the old adze cuts and tools marks!  In good condition showing wear and use with minor chips and scratches.
