Dayak tattoo ink container #15 (BTT15)

This ink pot is from the Dayak Kayan tribe in the Borneo Island. The figure is beautifully carved with a position that is most interesting. The seated female faces away from the bowl with it's arms and legs almost wrapped around the body of the ink pot. Great care has been taken to clearly delineate facial features hands, ears, legs, and arms which are clearly defined when viewed in profile. The interior of the pot has been partially cleaned a long time ago, revealing the beautiful grain of the wood. In excellent condition.
The whole figure stands 3 inches tall by 2 inches in width.
