Itara figurine of the Atauro island culture. Unfortunately, there are almost no traces of the pre-Christian culture of the tribes of the Atauro island. Several large idols, shields, axes, and itara figures. The figurines were a pair, a man and a woman, there is still no exact clarity of their purpose and use. Itaras were hung on the branches of bifurcated pillars behind the dwellings or on the pillar of the male part of the house, inside the dwellings. Itara has a beautiful, recognizable carving style, remarkable proportions. Solid wood, black thick patina from internal storage, female figurine type.
