Aso Demon Protector in Two Parts
Modang or Bahau Dayak, Borneo
Wood
Circa 14th Century (C-14 tested)
16.5" x 9"

The curving lines of the body and architectural expression of the head demonstrate a Modang/Bahau style of an early period. This piece was found in a cave and would have served to protect the living from the dead. The extremely hard wood can resist degradation for centuries.
