IDOMA FIGURE 3, NIGERIA

Figure 3
14.25" high x 4" wide x 3" deep
$200

Despite its appearance this figure was probably made to be sold.

The splits down the back are wide but stable. Note the flatness on the front of the breasts and the back of the head and seat; it appears the carver ran out of wood to carve. Nevertheless, a small, arresting figure.
