WOOD, HEIGHT 59CM
A well proportioned statue with typical round head and proportionally large ears of Tiv statues. It shows scarification on the body and forehead plus traditional marks on both sides of the mouth. There are still remnants of red paint in places, while the thick patina clearly shows large areas of spiritual libations. Other areas around the arms and stomach appear to be smooth polished wood from regular usage, reflecting the very old age of the statue.
