BAMANA
Figure 59
29.75" high x 11.5" wide x 9.5" deep
$400
SOLD

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

The wood on this piece is less dense than usual, leading to a nice overall weathering. There are cracks, now stable, on the bowl, the front of the figure and on both sides of the base. Pieces have broken-off from the front of the bowl and on the front flap of the skirt at the waist.
