Period 1900-1950, wood, in good condition

Another unique item from the web shop of Curiosa en Kunst!
A very beautiful sculpture of male fertility of 97 cm. The sculpture comes from the inventory of a mission house that was closed.
It was made of wood and then coloured with a natural colour. On his chest, the man has a pack. The maker of the sculpture would place a “magic charge'' inside, which would ward off bad luck, or bring luck. For example, seeds or soil was used for this. On these seeds or soil a ritual was first performed. It is possible that the chain also has a “magic charge”.
It was made by the LOBI people that comes from the Ivory Coast.
This sculpture was made in the first half of the twentieth century, is in original condition and is in good condition, with signs of old age, see pictures.
Dimensions / 20 by 17 by 97 cm.
Weight / 6.8 kg
The fertility sculpture is carefully packaged and sent registered.

    Superverkoper. Voor zelfs aan om alles terug te betalen vanwege een minuscule chip. Heel correct maar niet nodig.
