Description:
This unusual stone carving appears to be that of a monkey – interestingly it is in the pose of the great sculpture called “The Thinker” by Auguste Rodin located in Paris. This carving measures 7” high by 3” wide by 3 ¾” deep and is in excellent condition. It was said to be from the 12th to 13th century – we cannot validate this dating, but believe it to be at least as old as the 15th-16th century.

In reviewing many photos of primitive stone carvings from Indonesia, we find many similar examples of this piece that came from Borneo and Timor. We are accepting the attribution of Sumba origin from the dealer in Indonesian primitive art from whom we purchased the piece many years ago.

There are many artifacts of primitive art in Sumba: Wood carvings, sculptured stones, lime containers, traditional jewelery (Mamuli,Marengo,Tabelo), basket work, long knifes( Parang), traditional bag(Kalieku), primitive musical instrument, household items and artefact for fishing or hunting.

Sumba is an island in Indonesia, and is one of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Before colonization, Sumba was inhabited by several small ethnolinguistic groups, some of which may have had tributary relations to the Majapahit Empire
