tjh2: Feline Sculpture.
Unknown Dayak group. West Kalimantan, Borneo Island, Indonesia.
Wood. H: 26.75" (67.9 cm), W: 7.75" (19.7 cm), D: 9" (22.9 cm).
Unusual sculpture of a sitting feline figure, with a cavity carved out of the back.
The figure was cut from the top of a post that was placed outside, probably near the longhouse or funerary structures.
It is unclear what the cavity was used for, but likely for placement of ritual offerings to protective spirits.
In good condition, with some erosion on the top of the head.
