Country of Origin Tanzania
People Luguru?
Materials wood
Approximate Age 20th century
Dimensions 22 inches tall x 4.75 inches wide
Overall Condition Fair.  Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners.   Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use. We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings.  Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.
Damage/Repair both arms broken and repaired. scratches, gouges and chips. wobbles.

Additional Information:  A standing man with an expressive face and his arms hanging at his sides.  The base shows some signs of saccrificial materials.  The face is an exagerated size and is carved with an expressive countenance.  The carving style is reminiscent of known Luguru motifs, but very little is known about Luguru art in the western world, so we cannot be sure. 

Tanzanian tribal art is less researched and published than Western and Central art.There are still superb pieces coming out of rural areas. We spent five weeks last summer on a buying trip, and brought home a number of exceptional pieces.
