Important Keram Figure
Keram River, Papua New Guinea, 19th century or before
Height : 77 cm
Provenance : Joe Eszterhas, Los Angeles
Bruce Frank, New York
A tall and extremely old male ancestor figure from the Keram River. The surface is beautifully weathered but the sculpture remains perfectly readable and alive. The body slightly twisted with one foot up in a dynamic posture. The arms are long and thin, barely bented but ondulating along the torso. The gangly silhouette perfectly illustrating the innate sense of rythm of ancient Papuan carvers.
