Anglo-Indian 18th Century Carved Wooden Statue. A rare and unusual carved and painted figure of an Indian gentleman in the naïve style.
A very unusual Anglo-Indian 18th Century Carved Wooden Statue in naïve style. Am quite intrigued by this piece because it has the look of a European carved wooden statue but the subject matter appears to be an Indian gentleman but again my first thought was that he was a European! I do know that these naïve figures were popular in the 18th and 19th Century and I believe that this is an early example. Appears to be carved softwood and would originally have been painted - traces still remain. Not sure what his figure represents but he is carrying a staff in one hand - the other is missing an item- could have been some kind of carrying pack. Condition is good in that the wear has created a very pleasing patination and appearance - displays very well. Height of the statue is 13.5 inches.
