Splendid figurine made of bronze from a lady of the Babanki peoples from Cameroon. Beautiful elaborate details, and a nice patina. This fertility figurine shows a woman who stands firmly with both feet on Mother Earth, a symbol of fertility. She has a beautiful serene look and is nicely decorated all over the body.
Condition: good with traces of old age.
Provenance: Bought from the Witte Paters (Fr. Niekerk from Den Bosch) in Tilburg at the White Horse (Netherlands) in 1973.
Age of the object unknown but certainly from mid 20th century or earlier.
Will be packaged with care and shipped worldwide with track&trace.
