This Rare figural piece not only has a carved Chaklag or chest tattoo but also shows both arms tattooed with what appears to be the traditional Centipede Scale pattern. The large head has a decorative band which seems to signify either a headband or hat/helmet. The body shape is a traditional form that is normally seen on carved figural spoon handles but this figure is carved standing atop a base which still retains a partial old label.

The hardwood 6 1/2" carving is a rich chocolate brown and is most likely from the 19th - early 20th Century.
