This is a wonderfully soulful African carved wooden wall plaque of a bearded man wearing a hat. It is probably a representation of Jesus true to his geographical origins. He displays an intent and searching case, with his beard and hair incorporating different textural techniques. A simple hole has been carved, not drilled, in the back. He has been handpainted in two shades of varnish, the "skin" especially shows some wear at this point. The piece is 10 inches long and a bit over 4 1/2" wide.
