For more than five thousand years, figurative sculpture has been a characteristic African art form and a central feature of African ceremonial and social life. Its functions are complex and varied: amongst other things figures represent ancestors and spirits to whom people address their needs & desires. They may be placed on personal or village shrines & offerings made to them to propitiate the ancestors in invoking protection, good luck & prosperity or fertility.
This is an old carved figure with magnificent detail to line and form.
