THIS ITEM WILL BE POSTED FROM THE U. CONGO / ANGOLA CARVED WOODEN TRIBAL FIGURE PRESTIGE /FERTILITY STAFF. This is a very refined sceptre, the pregnant female figure is carved with great sensitivity and several details have been picked out by scorching to the wood. To me it is very much Congo region in appearance with the qualities of a Bembe sculpture but the face (eyes and mouth in particular) is perhaps more Angolan so I wonder if it might not be Songo in origin.
Please note the stand is temporary and would probably scratch / damage the figure if used in the long run so will not be included. Small chip to the underside of the coiled snake's mouth. Other light surface wear but no other serious damage. It stands about 13.2 / 33.5cms tall (not including the stand). For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured.
PLEASE be a little patient with the post - I will get them posted asap but I work on my own, have a large amount to post and I do pack carefully. I also post in the order that things are paid for. Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. / rest of the world. I add on very little, often not enough to cover the packaging materials, so the price I quote really is as fair as possible.This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country).
