This early miniature fetish figure, depicted in a crouched stance, features the remnants of a raffia costume around its waist. The figure's carved arms rest on its stomach, where a fetish hole is located. The top of the figure's head features another fetish hole, and an old brass tack has been placed below the neck area. Over time, the surface of the figure has developed a dark, worn patina.
Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (Or Before)
