I would like to know any information about this wood sculpture. My aunt is a collector she buys and trade, she recently move to the country side and in a way to help her financially I bought a piece from her home/store.
She was very found of this sculpture, and seems like she didn't want to let it go (I half believe her because she is my aunt but also a very good seller!) I end up paying $450 for it.
My aunt mention she got it at least 40 years ago in a trade show, she was not certain about the origin but believe it is from some part of the asia/pacific.
The sculpture is made out of one piece of wood, the woman is caring a basket in her back, maybe for rice? the dress looks like Indian vintage, and the painting is well coming off (probably and I hope for the years!)
The size of the sculpture is 18" hight, approximately 5.5" wide.
I really would love to know any information about this piece, it is original? Did I pay the right price? I was mock? or do I have a hidden gem in my home?
Thank you for your help!
