Feminine Figurine, Attie culture, Ivory Coast, height 48 cm.

Charming figurine representing a young girl with an elongated body. The figure is moving, it has a smooth and expressive face. Lovely work on the hairdo. The figurine has a wonderful ancient patina composed of several layers of paint and kaolin. The paint makes it look modern, but this is an ancient object, the wood attests this. Ancient and authentic figurine with much character. Around 1940.
