Ifugao Wooden Carved Figural Gong Handle Ex - Armand Labbe
This beautifully carved Ifugao wooden gong handle from Northern Luzon stands 4 1/2" tall and features a male and female figure. The twin piercings are between their knees at the top and between their feet underneath. The pair are covered in a rich glossy patina from handling over time.
Formerly in the collection of Armand Labbe until his passing in 2005. Labbe was the head curator at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California.
