These African busts are quiet a serious departure from what we normally sell, but I couldn’t resist these beautifully carved and decorated gentleman! They seem to be a step above your usual African curios, and rather enter the realm of art – at least I think they do! They’re made from a very light wood (in weight and in colour), which has then been stained and painted, but by someone who clearly knew what they were doing. I think that they’re really quite beautiful! The gentleman in the blue blazer is also very straight-backed, so in addition to being a simple display piece, he could also be used to prop up books – although no voluminous works of literature as he doesn’t have a lot of weight to him!
Dimensions: Bust in blue blazer – 20.5cm tall x 11.5cm wide x 6.5cm deep; Bust in olive green blazer – 21.5cm tall x 10.5cm wide x 9cm deep
