406 - Seated man, hands on knees

Koma

This is a very traditional statue in its gesture and its proportions. As other Koma statues, the man is in a sitting position with his hands on his knees. The legs have been broken. We are dealing with an important man here, a superior celebrated with pageantry. He is wearing a thick belt, but apparently without any other ornament. Its features are well crafted. The top of the head is in the traditional concave form designed to hold ritualistic liquids or rainwater which would then be drip from the nose, mouth or ears, all bored out for this purpose.

We have before us an excellent ancient statue.
