Figure 27
17" high
$300


This unusual drummer figure exhibits little evidence of use and was probably made to be sold.

These figures, some of which were brightly painted, were placed on altars in shrines or displayed at special ceremonies. The wand-like staffs were also carried during ceremonies. Several are depicted in colonial wear..
