African Igbo [ Nigeria ) Carved Wooden Tribal Head

A Great example of Igbo art being deaccessioned from my collection. This tribe is one my favorites. The facial expressions are so compelling and seem to be meditating . My supplier said this item would have been created mid to late 20th Century . Over the years I trusted his judgment and thru him assembled a very good collection representing many area of Africa. Very Old African art is so expensive that it's beyond most peoples means. I think that over the years this area of collecting will reap dividends however I never buy with that in mind. I only purchase things I like or consider fine examples of the field of art they come from. African art is centuries old and is being re-created similar to the way the Chinese do and have done for centuries.

Height 13 and 1/2 inches..............Base 6 and 1/2 inches
