This is a wonderful example of an Antique Wood Christ Bust from Sumatra in the Indonesian archipelago. I estimate the piece dates from the mid 1850's - a documented period when the Toba population (collectively called Batak people) on the northern end of the island of Sumatra came under the sway of the Catholic Church.
The figure is clearly an original and is made of a heavy hard wood giving it substantial weight for a figure of this size.
