Mid 20th century - In good/reasonable condition

Marked by age and heavily used tribal sacrificial figurine of the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria. A kneeling woman holding a sacrificial bowl in her arms. The bowl shows residues of ritual use. In addition to traces of intensive use, time also has left its mark on the statuette. As a result of this, the statuette obtained a special fascinating appearance, marked by age and with a soul! The figurine is nicely fixed on a stand.

Height: 30 cm (including foot 34.5 cm)
Width of the statuette: 12.5 cm
Depth of the statuette: 11 cm
weight: 1330 grams
Origin: Nigeria
Dating: Mid 20th century
Provenance: From the private collection of Peter Beaujean (formerly gallery/museum Tounkara in Rotterdam)
