Wall Altar Shrine (Large 845mm) Wall Sculpture Tafu Tavu Tanimbar Leti Statue Figurine


This artifact, a wall altar of the Tafu/Tavu people of Tanimbar Indonesia is by itself a remarkable piece. I’ve seen Tafu altars/shrine in complete human form, but not of this nature. This artifact is a panel, Fertility Shrine panel, the Deity Upuinai surrounded with open artwork which are classic symbols (spiral) of fertility. Signs of wear, but the panel is in solid condition. Wood. Metal stand included, 4 screws support the panel and stand together. Excellent piece for serious buyers, it is as rare as it is and will make a big impression to your collections! Circa 1950.
