Item Description

This wonderful hand carved wooden Ewe female ancestral sculpture from Togo is in a fragmented form which adds to its charm. This roughly carved figure shows the traditional elongation and exaggeration of form and the white chalky painted finish. Created as protective spirits which relate to the importance of the female role in keeping fertility within the tribe. Mounted on a stand.

H 31cm, W 12cm, D 11cm
