This hand carved ancestral African carving, came from a collector who was a professor at UBC and lived in the countryside. It was told to me that it was from Liberia. I have seen similar carvings done by the Dan people. This standing figure with arms on the side, it showing honest age, lots of wear and patina. It appears to be 19th century or older. It does have some cracks, on the side of the head and base, and some filled in cracks. Please look at the photos closely...
