GREAT! Old ancestor statue, IGBO, Nigeria, mid-20th century
Majestic, powerful old ancestor statue of the Nigerian IGBO tribe. Beautiful nuance in shades of grey with a clear use and aging patina. Subtle contrasts in colour and shape. The figure has a serene appearance and a receptive attitude because both hand palms are facing forward with remarkably big hands. Look carefully at the photos! The statue is neatly mounted on a stand.
