There was a flood of work like this that came into the country in the 1960’s-1970’s from Indonesia and the Phillipines, and went to the upscale import retailers. Yes, it is truly hand-carved, but on an assembly line where each carver did his thing and moved on to the next. There was a fascination with all things Asian in this period, and items like this came onto the market to satify the demand. At antique shows and auctions I often used to see this stuff being passed off as a hundred years old to unsuspecting customers. In its own right, these items stand on their own as very interesting, desirable and collectible pieces today.
