African carved torso
Unusual carved pregnant torso. Possibly a fertility sculpture, with a geometric design carved into the bump part of the torso. On the back of the sculpture you can clearly see the chip marks made by the carving tool. There is a a section at the base of the torso where a piece of wood has been chipped off, this is not noticable once hung on the wall. There are a few marks and dents in the wood and there is a noticable difference in the colour of the bump as there has been many hands over the years rub or touch it. Probably early 20th century. Interesting talking piece to have on the wall.
