Powerfully, beautifully, phenomenally crafted hardwood statue, this feminine ancestor statue of the MOSSI tribe. Proud, confident, powerful appearance. Partly due to its attitude. The head is hanging slightly to the back, delivering a powerful expression. The body seems strong and it has some smooth, rounded shapes. Lines are put here and there. Though the colour is deep brown, the patina by use and aging makes is more avid with light spots here and there, clearly visible on the photos. The knees are slightly bent and the legs stand apart somewhat. The statue is neatly mounted on a stand. Slight traces of use and aging, yet it is in good condition.

Width: 12 cm
Depth: 12 cm
Weight: 1295 grams
Origin: Burkina Faso
