2nd half 20th century - Good condition

This kind of fetish objects, here in the form of a wooden statue seated in a rattan woven basket is less common than the known tomb guards. It is also an object that is related to funeral rituals. The figure is seated on a piece of fabric covered with rope which objects are belonging to the deceased. Figure is made of wood, beautiful shaped face with a fine patine.

Such objects were placed in their own home. On departure for example, a trip was to the figure (the ancestor) asked for protection and a safe return. Also could be asked to give different advice. Good condition.
