BAGA
FIGURE 1
47" high
$1200
SOLD

The female form, so important in Baga art, manifests itself in various carvings including this large figure with bowl. The beautiful woman motif is a representation of a young initiated woman. Such figures are placed on shrines.

Despite its appearance, this Baga figure shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
