Help needed to ID this sculpture

Post by John Crowle on August 2nd 2018, 11:31 am

I've tried quite a few sites but haven't found anything remotely similar. All I know is it could be Tasmanian? and from the 1970's, I only have a photo, and no mark.Thanks.

the face looks like the Green Man
is it salt/soda glaze?

Curious to know where it is, if you only have the one photo?
Best guess would be a Bizen ware kiln god from Japan.

have no idea what sort of glaze, I'll keep on searching, looks kind of Japanese, maybe too ornate (? ) for a kiln god
