Statues 30cm- 12inches and over

Statues are not common in West Timor. There are very few old statues remaining and only a couple of carvers who create and recreate the ancestor figures of old. There are however, some contemporary carvers who delight in carving these effigies and sometimes I am fortunate to be on the island when they are offered.
