A vintage hand carved wood sculpture, a bust of a young woman. Carved in Africa of native hardwood of the ebony type, a dense finely grained wood. In my opinion it is very well carved indeed and sensitively captures the character of the sitter who I think is very beautiful.
If you would like more photos please just ask.
It is just over 6" high and weighs 480 grams..
It has no damage of any sort, just a little dust in the deep carving of the hair.
I lived in Africa in the early 1970's and think that this pre dates my time there. I am unsure of the origin but suspect that it may be Tanzanian.

I am happy to ship worldwide, so if you country is not listed please just ask for the shipping cost.
