This is a Rare and unusual wooden idol from the Nyamwezi peoples of Tanzania, Africa. Such sculptures with articulated limbs are reffered to as "Ritual Puppets" in my books, but I cannot find much information on how they were used ritually. This example has obvious age and wear and a golden honey colored patina on the wood surface from handling.Measures 10 .25 inches tall. and 3.5 inches wide. As a note, this figure does not stand well on its own.

Condition

Very well worn, overall in Good/fair condition
