HEMBA
FIGURE 11
10.5" high x 4" wide x 4" deep
$250

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

There are two small stable cracks on the forehead, side and base and a larger one on the back of the head.

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