nside statue covered with a crackled patina. The patina has darkened from smoke and has been formed by among others milk libations (distintive smell). There are numerous small worm holes going straight into the wood, also in the deeper carved areas like the eyes. This is good proof that it is not a fresh carving. There has been a bit more eating under the base; undisturbed point of entry....but not active anymore. Height 39cm. Reduced from 650 euro to 325 euro.
