Up for sale is a Zimbabwe. Heavy Hand Carved African Iron Wood Wooden Statue - Head / Feathers 16 Tall.This is very heavy and that is why I think it is Iron Wood. This is a sculpture of a head from the neck to top of the head dress or hair.. This has a nice and smooth finish on the front but then as part of the uniqueness, the side of the head and the back of the base were left natural with no carving done. The natural part has a rough finish and is not polished like the face and hair.
There is a sticker on the bottom that says "Hand Crafted in Zimbabwe". The approximate measurements are shown in the photos. 16" tall x 5" across bottom x 5 1/2 front to back. This is in good condition.There are many cracks in the wood on the back and side of the head where it was left unfinished??? The front has nice carved details on the face, hair and feathers.
It looks like there were holes drilled in for the eyes and at the corners of the mouth.
