Incredible Pair of Hand-Carved Wood Bust Sculptures of Tribal Shaman Figures


This pair of hand-carved wooden busts are truly a special find and a magnificent example of folk tribal art. Care and craftsmanship are clearly evident in these pieces as facial features, jewelry and hair are all careful executed. A dark, rich finish completes the pair and has achieved a beautiful patina. It is unclear which indigenous population is being represented, but they provide an air of the exotic to any sophisticated space. Amazing attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout make this rare find a truly unique curiosity. These examples could live nicely on a pedestal, console, shelf or table. In excellent vintage condition.
