CHOKWE
FIGURE 6
11.5" high x 4.5" wide x 5" deep
$250
Angola

Despite its appearance we believe this figure was made to be sold.

This half-figure is a covered bowl. There are two cracks in the lid, the one in front showing signs of repair, as does the crack on the back left side of the head. What appears to be a natural flaw in the wood has caused holes under the chin, and above and below the left breast. There is similar wood loss on the back of the left shoulder.
