A Most Peculiar Carved Wood Manikin from Java, Early 20th Century. I'm not sure what to say about this unusual piece as to its original purpose! The arms and legs are posted at the shoulder and legs allowing the figure to sit. The head is movable from side to side. Perhaps a tailors dummy for a child? Whatever it is it is pretty interesting! Fully intact except for a missing right eye, a few small chips and wear at the feet.
