From the Congo in Africa this figure was typically used to combat witchcraft and sorcery . The piece is old and our photos show it's condition. Quality such as this piece are very difficult to find and in the future will increase in value because the traditions they represent are not a part of current culture. When you consider and study this form of art it is amazing that it has been handed down from generation to generation with no written language or training for thousands of years. Many world famous artists have used African art for inspiration and some including Picasso had their own collections . The internet has many sites useful for research. From my personal collection and is being deaccessioned . A fine piece for the serious collector and also decorative Art for the Interior design Trade.
