This is a rare and very interesting old wooden sculpture from the Akan speaking tribes of Ghana. The exact ethnic group is unknown. The sculpture is quite large and measures 31 inches tall. The features are soft and muted because of the multiple layers of organic matter, libations and offerings poured onto the sculpture for many many years. rarely do I find such genuine example. This figure likely served as a village shrine object and served as a medium to the spirit world and the Akan ancestors.


Well weathered and eroded, fair condition.
