A wonderful primitive wooden guardian figure from the Jajarkot area of West Nepal. Such guardian figures were placed at shamanic shrines, springs, bridges and cross roads where they assumed the duty of fending off malevolent entities and other dangers, which tend to congregate in such areas. This one displays some of the most characteristic features of these primitive wooden figures. The hands are shown with the palms together in the "namaskar" gesture of reverence and greeting. The face is classic far west middle hills with fairly angular, primitive carving, and now displaying a fine patina that has the "crusty" tactile quality that evolves over long periods of time.
