TABWA
FIGURE 2
13" high
$500

This figure has been vetted as being authentic.

More in spirit with Nyamwezi and Zoromo figures to the east than Luba figures to the west, this simple but elegantly stylized figure is subtly colonial, with a cap, shirt and trousers. There is a crack, now stable, on the back , one on the front of the base and a very small one on the face (see detail below)
