This is a large fragment of a head with a superb doubtful expression, a pronounced chin and interrogative eyes. The sculptor paid special attention to the hairstyle which is rolled over the ears, and the flat nose, shaped like a three-leaf clover, and the triangular eyes are characteristic of the Nok aesthetic, with tight lips suggesting the silent mouth of someone sulky, almost scornful...
A piece full of character, displayed on a metal base, at a special price, to begin with a wonderful collection...
