Product Description

Old Makonde female figure from Tanzania, measuring 12 inches tall
This old wood carved figure is from Tanzania, made by the Makonde people. It is approximately 12 inches tall, and the maximum width at the arms is about 4 inches. It is all hand carved from a single piece of wood Details of the carvings can be seen in the pictures below.

I would guess this carving dates from about 1950-1970, but one can never be sure about the ages of African carvings. It has a very nice used patina. There are the normal signs of usage, with light rubbing and some soil in the grooves. I have done nothing to clean or polish this carving, since I realize collectors often want objects in "as found" condition. See the photos for more details.
