Old Timorese hard wood 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 this from an old Australian collection which was collected in the 1980s in West Timor, so this dates 1950’s to 1960s. This carved from hard wood in good condition with minor checks in the wood. H: 26/9.8in and W: 7cm/2.8in.

Included are later made antlers and a simple stand which will be disassembled when shipped.

Quirky big round ball of green glass; possibly sand cast, this would have been used to carve a Buddha image, from Northern Thailand. In the 1950s the Japanese started exporting mold cast glass images to Thailand and Laos so this practice died out around then. There is a Buddha in there waiting to be realized, otherwise it looks nice on the windowsill, especially when the sun shines through it. Weight 210grams D: 5.5cm/2.2in.

Given its hardness and cost, ebony is usually only given to master craftsman to carve from...
