Exceedingly rare large Easter Island (Rapa Nui) carved piggybacked Moai Kavakava double figure. One gaunt figure is carrying another figure or a carving on his shoulders, perhaps in a dance. The paired figures carved from wood with inset white vertebrae eyes. Nice , old dry patina, early 20th or more likely 19th century. From the estate of collector and Fulbright scholar Professor Peter Pelletieri.

Condition

Good, there is an old split in the head of one of the figures, a piece of the foot is also broken but held in place by the added newer base.
