|BAKOTA STYLE RELIQUARY GUARDIANS 3|
|BAKOTA STYLE RELIQUARY GUARDIANS ARCHIVES (ALL SOLD)|
Figures like these were mounted on containers holding relics of important clan ancestors, serving as guardians. Two-dimensional and sheathed in metal (brass or copper), the figures include projecting shapes around the face that refer to elaborate coiffures, and a diamond shape below the neck that is an abstracted body form.
Old Bakota reliquary figures are very rare. Despite their appearance, our figures show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
