Description: A similar topic with the Kampti carvers I mentioned recentl.: The "carver with the straight arms of the Kampti region", rare and differnt than the wellknown figures of this region, which normally have bent arms.Paul Howlett sent me a link to the Katsouros collection.*I know that the Kampti styles are common, but the carving you have is a rare type and is probablyolder , the two carvings on the left in the photos above are different to the more developed workshop style and are from the same carver /style as your piece .If you look closely you will notice that the arms are different, they are straight and vertical there are no elbows/joints in the arms which you can see developed on the next third standing figure . You will also see that the nose on the first two figures is flat and triangular, just as is the nose in the figure which you have recently bought. These carvings are usually standing and this carver has great difficulty in producing seated bambar figures as the example on Katsouros's site shows. the more common figures have pointed noses.* PHThis sculpture has a large crack going through the face of the figure, but in my eyes it is an excellent exemplare of the rare Kampti style, which doesn't exist anymore since a log time.1.200 - 1.600,- EuroHeight: 53 cmWeight: 1,9 kg
