Votive statue from a shaman's temple
A large and impressive statue- with condition issues. I don't think this has been an outside statue. It is more likely it has been kept in a cave or shaman's temple. I prefer the idea of a cave as the wood is light of colour and lacking any dark patina. There are wheatered spots on top of the head, on one shoulder and under the base that fit with the idea of dripping water and a moist (stone) underground. -In Nepal the base has been cut shorter to lose rotten material and make it (sort of) straight again. Height 76cm. Reduced from 1.300 euro to 650 euro.
