Up for your consideration is this SPECTACULAR vintage Shetani Makonde sculpture! It is hand carved out of a single large piece of ebony, and has a very bizarre form of a stylized and abstracted figure.
It has a grotesquely twisted face with pendulous and textured breasts for eyes. The elements of Surrealism and Cubism are ever-present in this piece.
It stands 15" tall, by 5" wide, and 3 deep, and is in EXCELLENT vintage condition. There are some repairs to the wood that appear to have been made by the artist at the time of the initial sculpting. These are visible in the pictures. This is a SUPERB and top notch example of Makonde sculpture!
