Description
We can only wonder what tribal life must have been like many years ago. Yet the sculptures that are available show us the beauty of the people who belonged to these tribes.

This tall and slender male has an oval shaped face with stylized features. Yet his entire face is in perfect symmetry. He wears a V-shaped headdress on his head. His chin is pointed and a ribbed object protrudes out from it. His limbs are long making him look very graceful, and his small hands give him delicacy. Gently draped around his middle is a simple loin cloth, adding a primitive style to him, but keeping him very elegant and graceful, often difficult to create in a wooden sculpture.
