Beautiful head statue of an ancestor with such a piercing gaze that it is mesmerizing. The Toraja placed wood statues of ancestors coated with clothes on wooden balconies hanging from cavities in the rock cliffs. These statues were often made of nested elements. This was the case of the heads, but also for the arms. The piercing gaze is made by embedding a piece of shell instead of the pupil. The retina is the same wood as the statue. Sold with its base.
