A touching native depiction of a working mother and child. The infant is cradled in a back pouch while the mother prepares food. The unschooled but not unskilled carver has painstakingly depicted the domestic vignette down to the tiniest details---body scarifications, individual eyebrows, the baby's miniature features and tiny foot popping from under the binding. Age estimated at 40 years.
Height is 17" and weight around 20 lbs.
