Hi Steve
Made on mass in Kenya, sorry if you paid a lot for it! The same figure is used on sticks salt and pepper pots and a host of other items. The tourist markets are flooded with them.
Cheers Mate

ebony hard wood, and the man is about 6 ins

time. cheers mate xhosa

Hi Xhosa,
IMO Masai. Stature and leg ornamentation seems to support that.

regards

barry.

PS; if it were not for the ornamentation could be Amathonga ( n.e. Zululand south of Mocambique border)

Les.
Time to put my head on a block. (no pun intended ).
In the valley of the kings there is a farm called Maweni. I really don't know if it still exists, its years since I was in that area. Anyway there were a family of carvers on that site and the one head looks so close to the work they produced.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
This one of mine from that area.
But there again mate Im no expert.

Cheers

Need to add, the stone is most probably Soap Stone.

Sorry Les should have added the female looks very Kenya, Masai. Would agree with Barry on the others.

Less
Its around 18 inches high. We bought it on a family trip to Natal, my daughter dubbed it 'headache' that was around twenty years ago, its remained that ever since. Weighs around 12 kilo so I took it on board as hand luggage on the way back and pretended it was light as a feather, nearly broke my bloody shoulder bag and shoulder.

Cheers
