Beautiful representation of ancestor or protective spirit of the clan. This large male figure was probably kept in the house of initiations. It presents a male figure with the knees slightly bent, the arms which go up on the chest. The sex is visible and symbolizes procreation and lineage. A bird is stuck at the top of the character's head. Very nice stylization.
Wood, natural pigments.
Slit at the base, bird's head broken and glued
