Beautiful example of African metal and wire work over wood in this reliquary figure. These types of ritual pieces were placed in baskets containing bones of ancestors to ward off evil spirits. This outstanding work is a sculpture of timeless importance. The intricate detail in the metal basketweave design is very appealing and unusual! Very good condition. Estimated age: early 20th century. This piece is custom mounted with a double steel plate bronze patinaed mount - coordinates beautifully with the piece!
