The arts of Timor are appreciated by collectors and bear witness to the great richness of the cultural heritage of this little-known island of Indonesia. Timorese sculptures are sought after for their antique look and trendy ethnic style. They are therefore both cultural and decorative objects.

Each statue of Timor is a unique work entirely handmade. Differences in appearance are therefore possible compared to the photographed model.

History and Significance of Timor's Statues

Timor is an island in the Indonesian archipelago where tribal traditions and thousand-year-old artistic cultures persist.

Here we offer you a traditional statue of a village girl. But Timorese art is not limited to wood carving. On the contrary, it stands out for its diversity and complexity, reflecting the influence of the different ethnicities and linguistic groups that populate the island. Textile weaving, pottery, ritual painting and music are other artistic fields in which Timorese creativity is expressed in abundance, taking up stories from local mythology, geometric patterns or representations of animals.

Statues of villagers, such as the one proposed here, usually represent deceased relatives: they help to establish a link between the living and the dead, to preserve the memory of the departed, and they are also used as protection against evil spirits.

By purchasing one of these creations, you support Timorese craftsmanship and give meaning to your interior design.
