This Sukuma figure has an amazing powerful expression with inserted aluminium eyes and a set of metal teeth. A leather band is wrapped around the figure’s neck. Carved without arms, which is typical with such figures, the body has been painted red in order to emphasise its presence.
The eroded feet of the figure suggest it was originally placed beneath a protective shelter, acting as a guardian figure.
Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century
