Shrine Figure

Togo, Nigeria
Early 20th Century

This abstract stylized figure from Togo-land is a fine example. The elongated head with large ear orbits and finely scarified body is a leap from the average Togo figure. The patina is dry and eroded in areas from many years of use and exposure. Some losses due to erosion, but this does not detract from the sculpture.

This figure stands 11.5 inches tall.
