The Ifugao are the best known among the cultural groups that occupy the mountainous areas of Luzon, northern Philippines. This enchanting figure is carved as if it is in the middle of a tribal dance. The artist achieved this effect by tipping the body slightly to the side, and making the left arm much shorter than the right arm as if it is retracting back into the torso. The figure is carved from hardwood and sports a fine hone brown patina. Ex. Bruce Frank (US).
