Sculpture (1) - Wood - Mtetezi - Luvale - Angola

Description
Sculpture (1) - Wood - Mtetezi - Luvale - Angola
Late 20th century - Fair

Special doll of a very small tribe, Luwale Angola/ border Zambia. That doll is in our family since 1965. The doll itself is even older than 50 years. The doll has been a protection for the tribe. In those times you often found these forms of heads because people in that tribe found it a beautiful shape and they specially laid them next to the children in the crib.
This truly is an exceptional piece, with history, of good quality and in beautiful preserved condition. It is really rare.
