Ghana. Wood. Pigments.
Fantastic contemporary statue, with no religious or spiritual overtones, of a highly regarded leader ("chief"). Regal as he is imposing, he is fantastically carved, complete with Kente (royal) cloth and a walking staff, both in relief.
This statue was carved to perhaps commemorate the standing of a highly placed leader. He certainly seems to exude great power and confidence!
"Powerful" chief sold without the terracotta necklace. In addition, arrangements would have to be made for pick up.
