A standing female figure carved out of light wood in quintessential Akan/Ashanti/Fante doll style and painted in light color, posed with mature, maternal elegance. The black, highlighted details of the face with the finely braided hairstyle are suggestive of sculptures from the Coastal regions of Ghana, where iconic fertility figures are common. The pose of the female figure and her protuberant stomach suggest the specific purpose for use in a shrine context as a fertility figure. Her long neck is ringed indicating wealth and well-being. Her muscular body is naked apart from sandals (a symbol of her status as a Queen Mother).
Will be well packed and shipped with tracking and trace.
Please look carefully to the pictures to avoid any disputes.
