This is an Ewe idol from the Volta region of Ghana. It is not a used one but is of a type that Ewe people would buy from a carver when they want to practice Voodoo. It hasn't been activated,which is when they turn it into a god by sacrificing a chicken and letting the blood run over the carving to "feed it".They would also pay homage to it by pouring gin over it which is also necessary to empower it.This carving is unusual because of the painted detail which is rare.
Dimensions: 37cm high
