A unusual sculpture of a squatting women made from sandstone.
It might be a female deity which was disposed inside the private rooms for good look. Maybe this special one was made under the influence of the Christianisation after the 1930s. The folded hands could point that, but it is possible, that the way she holds their hands should point out fertility.
The sculpture is decorated with a necklace made from snail shells and pig tusks.
Despite it's simplicity the sculpture has a impressive power.
Provenience: German Private Collection (clearing).
