Here is a great example of the oxymoronic modern primitive look that became a hallmark of the mid-century aesthetic. Granted, we usually associate 195o's home decor with futurism and clean lines, but what we can also expect is the occasional nod to "Exotica". Such is the case with this Hawaiian or perhaps Easter Island style sculpture. While it appears to be carved stone on a wooden base, it is in actuality one solid ceramic or plaster piece... and rather heavy at that.
