About the item

Selon Palencia (1998, p. 53) à propos des styles de la statuaire Ifugao, il existerait une correspondance entre la taille de la rizière et celle de son bulul protecteur. Ainsi, "les bulul de Lagawe sont petits comme les terrasses de la région". La large base circulaire à étranglement, taillée en facette, met en valeur l'individualité de chaque figure, dont la petite dimension contraste avec l'impact visuel du buste à la puissante carrure. A la force des volumes stylisés répondent l'intériorité du visage aux traits esquissés, et le soin accordé aux détails des articulations, notamment la ligne tendue dessinant les clavicules. Elles ont conservé leur pagne en tissu. Au sommet de la tête, les chevilles en bois servaient à fixer une longue mèche de cheveux en fibres végétales.
