Attributed to Baule

THis fine old African doll/figure is enigmatic in origin. Probably Baule or Akan. Possibly Tanzania. Whatever the case, the figure is old and has great expression.

One hint may be the cavity in the top of the head, for receiving a magic charge.

With dry patina and nice chip carving marks the figure does have a line crossing it's chest and arms.

Approx 9" / 24 cm

Ca. 1950s/60s
