Product Description

Carved wood figure measuring 12 inches total height
This unusual old wood carved figure is from Zaire (now called the Democratic Republic of the Congo). The collector from whom I bought it had owned it for 20 years, and was uncertain of the origin. It is approximately 12 inches tall, and maximum width about 4 inches across the shoulder. Details of the carving can be seen in the pictures below.

Date is uncertain, probably between 1950 and 1980, and has a 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 below for more details. There is a small ding on the nose, as can be seen in the photo to the left.
