AKAN
Terracotta Head 1
10.5" high
$800

This head has been vetted as being authentic with signs of use and age, probably late 19th century.

This head has been severely damaged and repaired.  The pieces around the neck show clear breakage and, on the inside, evidence of the gluing of the pieces together.  Less clear is some cracking and restoration on the forehead.
