H. 30 cm. Mid 20th century. Condition: lovely honey-brown patina with some age cracks. Ex. Patrick Durand, Toulon, France. Female representations are important in the Ashanti culture as the female ancestor or Queen-Mother is the center of familial and community life and the center of political life. Figures like this will receive offerings and gifts while on her shrine.
