GAN, FETISH 7, 12", $500, Burkina Faso, SOLD

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

We know little about these enigmatic figures from the Gan people. There are some similarities with sculptures from the neighboring Akan, Fon and Ewe peoples.
