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.

Additional Information: A stylized cast figure with an elongated belly, in an unusual kneeling position!

A tradition of metal (iron, bronze and brass) cast figures is found among a number of different peoples of the Western Sudan including the Senufo, Dogon, Akan, Bozo and the various groups of Burkina Faso. This figure is more likely Dogon than Senufo.
