HEMBA
FIGURE 15
13" high x 4.25" wide x 3.75" deep
$100

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

There is a crack, now stable, down the left side, from the head to the base.

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