8: Wood Ancestral Shrine Door.
With Human Motif. Toraja, Sulawesi Island, Indonesia. Museum Collection, Texas.
This is without a doubt one of the finest human figure doors known and one of my favorite pieces of all time.
It literally took my breath away every time I would pass it in my house. The face and posture is sublime and the surface details are exquisite,
especially the archaic Rembon style tattoos on the chest. The rich lichen patina practically glows under light.
