Votive statue from a shaman's temple.
Wooden statue from a shaman's temple, Western Nepal, Jajarkot or Jumla region, mid 20th century or before. The way the legs are carved is unusual in the sense that it holds the middle between standing and squatting. Dark crusty patina with more mud-like layers on top of it. The erosion on the sides of the base and under the base suggest it has been standing on a (moist) stone surface. In it's sort it is quite refined and elegant. Height: 47cm.
