Description

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.
