 Price and further provenance on request 
The matched pair carved in a masterful, cubist style. Dynamic and monumental. They exhibit very deep, old, darkened, aged patina. Representing a primordial, ancestral male and female, they were placed on or around shrine altars and ritually libated. Some old desiccation and losses of feet from moisture damage, otherwise solid and intact with shiny, varied, faceted surface. Male stands 22.25"H, female stands 21"H. Wonderful, old true pair, rarely seen. Each mounted on a flat steel base. Provenance: purportedly Mathias Komor, NYC, 1970's
