Ashanti African Maternity Figure
A very large fine Ashanti maternity figure.
The mother figure is seated on a cat.
An infant sits on her lap whilst being offered to drink from her breast.
She has another baby on her back.
Her broad face carved in typical Bonsu fashion,
with features that are both elegant and sensuous,
complete with finely coiffed hair.
She is naked save for a series of rings around
her neck and genuine African glass beads and a brass pendant.
An applied white encrusted patina covers the surface.
Tribal Village aims to keep the ancient arts and crafts of Africa alive by
bringing them to the modern world, promoting them as important elements of modern interior decor
and supporting the artisans that created them.
