Old wooden statue commemorating a departed loved one. These were kept in the “attic” of a home and were not meant to be free standing. I bought these from an old Australian collection which were collected in the 1980s in West Timor, so these date 1950’s to 1960s. This carved from hard but not particularly heavy woods- good condition with minor checks in the wood. H: 19cm/7.5in.

A well-detailed fox head surrounded by geometric designs decorates one side, while a typical tribal symbol covers the other. The seat itself is surrounded by a serpent design. Lovely patina.

A Solomon Islands carved wood crescent shaped Samoan club. Appears (from our familiarity with Chinese furniture) to be ironwood. The incised decoration is partially filled with remaining encrustation. Good condition with minor surface wear (judging from which, a good patina has accumulated on this quite hard wood.) The flattened end of the grip, however, might possibly have at some point extended a bit longer (though there is patina to that surface as well.) Length, 25 1/8 inches (63.8 cm)
