Beautiful statue! This decorative fetish statue of the Bacongo. Two beautifully carved figures sitting on a fantasy figure. There are feathers on the head. They sit back to back and can keep an eye on everything around. Below this, the statue flows into a part of the fabric-covered "neck" with the head of an animal with glass eyes underneath. If you shake the whole thing, seeds rattle inside. Beautiful deep medium brown patina. This special object is neatly placed on a custom-made stand. Good condition!
