A nice and old primitive figure from West Nepal ( upper karnali river districts) figuring an ancestor in ritual gesture of Namaste, its legs are slightly bent. The representation of the head is done in a minimal style the eyes are round, the mouth is small and rectangular, the ears are outlined.This statue is carved from a hardwood and shows a very old patina of weathered wood with old traces of xylophagous insects. The feet have been eaten away by long exposure to a humid ground, otherwise the general condition is quite good considering its age. H 42 cm, circa mid 20th presented on a metal base, weight 1.5 kg
