Lot 256: A heavily eroded old Hemba Ancestor figure

A heavily eroded old Hemba Ancestor figure, Hemba; D.R. Congo

The figure well carved and of good size with a majority of the surface eroded due to insect depredation after the statue was likely abandoned. The face still powerful with well proportioned features and fine balance of the body; probably Eastern Hemba. A powerful piece that maintains the original form, though now a dramatic fragment.. H. 20 1/2"
