Vintage head to bust hand carved wooden sculpture of an African Woman with a full head dress that I refurbished with adornment by paint and a handmade necklace. It was unpainted, and I touched it up with acrylic paint as an accent with gold, red and black to the earlobes, lips, eyes and headdress. I made a bone & carved wood bead necklace on a leather string that I placed around her neck for adornment as well.
It is signed by the original artist, &I initialed my own initials in gold paint as well on the underside for the extra touches.
I am not sure when it was made, but I am guessing around the 60's or 70's by style. The wood is a rich brown with reddish highlight, and is dark and heavy. It weighs almost 4 lbs.

It is in very good vintage condition without chips, cracks or repair. There are a few minor scratches that are on the back.

Measurements:11 3/4" tall by 7" across the length at the base.

It would be a great addition to any ones African ethnic collection.
Estimated shipping weight is 5 lbs 8 oz give or take a few ounces.
