Luguru figure, Tanzania
wood, pigment
16.5" tall

Finely carved, graceful lines, wonderful expression with the head turned to the side. I have no collection history on
this particular figure, I acquired it together with the Luguru staff and was told it came from the same collection in
New York. I've had several people look at the figure and the consensus was that the figure was carved by a
Luguru carver and most likely collected early in it's life since it doesn't show a lot of signs of age or use. Estimated
age of the figure is mid 60's.
