Guest Book

Ensemble of 5 old wooden statues commemorating departed loved ones. 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 1980sin West Timor, so these date 1950’s to 1960s. The two largest figures have some age cracks on the back and the feet on the female figure are damaged, but all have nice patinas and are carved from hard but not particularly heavy woods. Sizes range from 19cm/7.5in and 34cm/13.5in
