3651: Ancester or Guardian Figure "Patong".

Dayak (possibly Ngaju). Central Kalimantan, Borneo Island, Indonesia.
Hardwood. H: 65" (165.1 cm).
Sculpture of a female figure holding a baby. It is unclear if this is an ancester or a protective spirit as the expression is very aggressive.
The most unusual feature is the long braided hair, flowing down the figure's back.
Missing part of upper left arm/shoulder and has additional erosion around the head.
Mounted on custom metal plate, not shown in photos. More photos available.
