Old pair of ancestor figures, both figures are standing up, and have an astonished expression. The man has the arms along the body while the woman keeps her breast with one hand and with the other keeps her stomach. The carving is pretty simple and rough according to the Timorese tradition. Evident traces of weathering and erosion specially at the bottoms, because they have been kept outside the hut.
There are some minor dents on the ears that show the live wood, probably redwood, that s actually a very strong and heavy kind of wood
