South African Hand-Carved Ironwood Mother/Child

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.

Item ID: COC-265
