TABWA STYLE
COVERED CONTAINER 1
19" high x 8" wide x 7" deep
$700

Despite its appearance this covered Tabwa container was probably made to be sold.

With figures similar in spirit with Luba figures to the west, this container has a figure with the typical long Tabwa hairdo and scarification. There is some wood loss on the edges of the top and a repaired crack on the front of the base.
