Seller: tshop360 (25) 100%, Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122246515758 *** Colonial Men 'British' Wes Africa*** These figurines became popular post-colonial rule during the 1940's in West Africa. The local craftsmen depicted these figurines from wood or clay showing various Europeans and Americans and how they dressed based on their professions and as these foreign administrators and expatriates began to depart, they summoned the local craftsmen to commissioned portraits of their vocation as a souvenir to their families and friends back home. There were also some Africans dressed in a similar manner who were taught by Missionaries who have lived in Africa for many yers. Some of these Africans were educated to become Dr.'s lawyers, Teachers, Nurses, etc. \The size of this figurine in our collection ranges from 11/2 ...7/2.../ 6" The masks are 6" tall and 4/2 wide The figurines are 11 and a half inches tall and 3" wide There's also 7 and a half inches tall 3 inches wide Condition: There's a sign of wears and paint chips as these Antiques have been kept for over 18yers at their family home,says the son of the guy who made these figurines. If you have any other questions please ask before proceeding to bid on this fine art. Some of them not stand straight up as it's made by hand, but you can easily use a knife to flatten the base which the figurines are standing on. I choose to leave them in their natural state and sell them as such., Material: Wood, Provenance: Ownership History Available, Few signs of wear: Soft Wood
