Wooden Figure, 18th Century Hawaii

Among the treasures in the basement of the St. Louis Art Museum is this 18th century wooden figure from Hawaii,  sitting in a case about five times larger than it needs to be.  Very odd arrangement, but I like the design silhouette. 
Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-85mm f2.8-f4, ISO 800, 85mm @ f/4.0 @ 1/13s, handheld.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, edited in Nik Silver Efex Pro to give the picture an antique travel card look.
