Exceptionally beautiful stylized bust of an Asian woman, this is from the Philippines and dates to around the late Art Deco period, it was hand carved from a single piece of wood by a master wood carver. The bust is large measuring 15" tall by 5 1/4" wide by 4" deep, and is finely carved into textured and smooth finishes that give form and dimension, it is made of a lighter toned hardwood that has mellowed to a rich gold in tone, and is in excellent order with just the slightest wear to the finishes, there are no chips or other damage. This beautiful sculpture would be a wonderful focal point on a table, shelf or mantle, it is highly three dimensional and has a dramatic and striking presence. There is an almost identical bust in the William Marcellous Lindgren Asian Art Collection at St. Cloud State University.
