African BAGA NIMBA Protector of Women Figure Statue AFRICAN BAGA NIMBA FIGURE from GUINEA

This figure is representative of the most important BAGA art forms, the NIMBA mask. It represents the mother of fertility, protector of pregnant women and presides over agricultural ceremonies. It is adorned with metal studs and decorative metal on the face and head.

T is a natural split in this figure as shown but in my opinion, does not affect its beauty.

Measurements: 18-1/4" high x 6-5/8" wide x 7-1/2" deep

Material: Wood, Metal, Pigment
