Large Micronesian Squatting Figure with Hair
This 9 1/2" tall Micronesian heavy hardwood squatting figure has inlaid roughly cut Mother of Pearl shell eyes. The face is unique in that it has raised lips, carved eyebrows, and the bottom of the nose is shaped realistically. The back has a gentle curve to it. The fingers curl over the front of the figure's knees, and the feet have notched toes. The left foot has a small chip on the outside edge. Some of the cuts in the hair have residual lime or plaster in the points.
