Mid 20th century - Good condition

Very rare fertility puppet of the Nyaturu, who live in Central Tanzania.
These calabash puppets must ensure fertility, they are carried on the backs of the young girls and the women together with their child. The sound that is made by the cowry shells reminds them continuously that they are carrying a child.

The height of this calabash is approx. 25 cm (without the fixation cord.
The whole is in very good condition and the calabash itself has a beautiful user patina.

This is a unique opportunity to obtain such an extremely rare object.

Comes without stand.
Will be sent with track and trace.

    This piece is amazing. It looked nice in the picture but it is speldid when one can hold it & feel the texture and weight of the fab clay beads. I am proud to now own such a unique piece of jewelery.
