S475 – An old Timorese hand carved ancestor figure. This old man is squatted with his hands on his shins and head slightly tilted upwards. Acquired in the field in the early 1990’s. Estimated age 75 years.
Unknown timber that has aged to this deep black, I would have to scrape of some of the patina to find out which timber the artist has carved this ancient man from.

I am Julie and have been collecting Timorese Treasures in the field since 1990 when I won a prize for overseas travel in a pub in Darwin [true]. I had no idea at the time that I had stumbled upon an Aladdin’s cave of authentic traditional tribal textiles and treasures. I have been returning annually ever since [well most years] and been witness to many changes across the last 3 decades. Read more about Timor and I in THE BIGGER PICTURE.
