Ancestral Sculpture / Korwar statue figure. Indonesia.
Korwar images served as supernatural intermediaries, allowing the living to communicate with the dead. When a family member died, his or her relatives summoned a carver, typically a religious specialist, who created a Korwar and enticed the spirit of the deceased to enter it.
The robust head and arrow-shaped nose that are the hallmarks of Cenderawasih carving.
