Exceptional antique African Tribal Art terracotta sculpture representing a rider on his horse. It dates back from the 14th -15th century AD and its dating has been confirmed by a thermoluminescence test (Interexpert certificate 388317, 18 March 1988) - scan attached with the photos.
It belongs to the Koma-Bulsa culture located in present Ghana.
This is a naturalist sculpture with traditional Koma-Bulsa patterns as the concave shape hairstyle, the half-moon chiik necklace similar to the ones worn by Bulsa people today, the knife laced on the upper arm.
It is exceptional to find a confirmed antique African terracotta in such a well-preserved state.
