Description
The traditions behind this elegant figure are as old as civilization itself: a deity whose benevolence assures an abundant harvest and therefore the continuity of life. Every great culture since the dawn of time has appealed to such gods in one guise or another. Though this well-preserved wood piece is ancient by the standards of African art, it reflects beliefs that stretch back centuries farther than any known effigy. - (PF.0293)
