151 - Lady with hands on waist

Sokoto

Another conical piece in our gallery, this female figure representation is done in a very fine terra cotta, very hollow and very fragile. The eyes, the nostrils, the mouth, the ears and the navel are pierced and thus go through to the interior of the statue. Marks cut across the neck indicating three rows of rustic necklaces. The piece is basic, simplistic and without particularly any aesthetic or realist elegance.

H. 21 cm
