HEMBA
FIGURE 4
19" high x 7" wide x 7" deep
$1000
SOLD

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

The obvious erosion and wood loss is stable and contrasts nicely with the areas of smooth, elegant carving.  The custom mount is included.

Usually representing spirits or ancestors , these figures, male or female, exhibit a timeless, serene quality important to the Hemba people.
