Looking for the realised and estimated price?

Description: **Originally listed for 200.

Africa, Yoruba, Nigeria, ca. 1950 to 1960. Looking a bit like Maggy Simson, but created long before this TV show ever hit the airwaves. Wooden staff in the form of a male chieftan. He sits upon a rounded stool holding a dead bird in one hand a mace or rattle in the other. His face is marked with liberal amounts of ritual scarification and he is painted in bright shades of yellow, blue, red, black, green and white. Rare to find this nice! Size: 11.5" H (29.2 cm)

All tribal examples have been vetted and are guaranteed authentic tribally used pieces and not tourist items.

Provenance: Ex - Adeon Gallery, Nick Poolos collection, Chicago, IL acquired before 1970

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
