Guest Book
A small female fetish, wood with magical substances to the abdomen, traces of resin on the head which probably at one time held a magical charge, leather skirt and copper leg wrappings. Height 7 5/8". Excellent condition with a dark, glossy patina. Lovely gesture of her hands holding her breasts. Ex. James Stephenson African Art. James Stephenson purchased this piece from a trader in Tanzania who informed him that it was from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. No further information was given with the piece, and I have not been able to identify its ethic origins.
