We all know of the monkey figurines and rarely you see, speak or hear of human like examples as the set I have on offer. These three are individualy handcarved and stained, from what I believe is bone. (But they could also be from a boar's tooth or perhaps goat antler, it's a natural material and definitedly not a resin)Possible origin: Africa's "Ivory" West coast. Appr. h. 3"1 or 8 cm.

This must be the most unusual sculpture of African art I've ever come across.It came from an old Belgian collection. I assume its' origin lies in former Belgian Congo. I'm not an expert on Tribal art or African geography but this figurine must be very rare for African standards. The patin and slight repairs and/or fillings at some places date this item to early 20th century to pre ww2. I don't know if the monkey represents a soccer or rugby player...
