Fine example of a Baule wood carved female figure . This item is from my personal collection and was purchased directly from an African trader who I have dealt with for a number of years. He says it is about 50 years old and I will leave that up to the Experts. I have found that his descriptions of all the pieces in my collection have been very accurate. African art has been collected for several hundred years and has been a strong influence on many artists work over the years. Ancient or even African art that is over a hundred years old is very expensive because due to climate and storage conditions [ lack of ] very little has survived. For the consummate collector.
