Vintage Hand Carved Pygmy
This statue is approximately 4 - 2 1/2' tall
This Pygmy was hand carved in the jungles of the Philippiens in the mid 60's out of solid wood, we do not know for sure the type of wood, we think it is either Teak or Philippine Mohagany. The headhunter and the body are made from one solid piece of wood.
Notice he is holding the head and the body is between his legs. He also has the ax in his and and the ax's grip has a baby crocodile on it.
The history on this headhunter and our items are rather interesting, while my parents were in the outlying areas of the Philippiens looking for wood to import for our business, they stumbled across a village and while asking directions they notice some wood carvings, there were six in all. They spoke to the sculpture and asked if he would be interested in selling them, he was not. A couple of days later my parents returned to the village to see if they could change the sculputres mind, to there shock they found out he had passed away the day before, after consoling his wife, she asked if they were still interested in purchasing the items. Forty plus years later four of the six items still are displayed proudly in our store, for all to enjoy.
After much time and discussion we have decided to list the four remaining items on eBay and hopefully they can find a good home!
