These three intersting small size Massim Figures look great together, they each have unique personality, the one on the far left is my favorite as the carver used his immagination to do something  different than the average squatting figure, it came from the collection of ex Richard Baird he supposedly acquired in from the Australian artist Leonard French who had a fine collection of New Guinea Art.  The other two are both fine sculptures but togther they are “sculptural group”
