Tribal Man Statue

The statue of a tribal man is independently cast with brass. The attire – ornaments, and ensemble – of the man seem to hold some authoritative position in society. The pendants, perhaps amulets or medals denoting distinction, worn around his neck are indicative of his authority; however, his head-gear defines his specific rank.

The figure has been installed on an independent drum-like pedestal. The man has put on a short skirt fashioned out of a textile woven by joining raw silk cords holding a tiny pitcher in one hand and a stick on another hand.
