Dayak Ancestor figure Tajahan

Without hesitation one of the finest Dayak ancestor figure from the Duth colonial era, bringing with it the must of the Dayak culture,the style of the sculpture is definitively from the Ot Danum tribes (central part of Borneo island) - Kalimantan. Generally mostly carved with a frustrated rendering this special piece has an inequal  power who gives to this ancestor a unique alive aspect. Such post, sitting in  a chair and so well carved where only erected for kings or highly precious dignitaries.
