Beautifully sculpted mahogany busts from Tanzania. The workmanship draws one into the faces which seem to be telling us something.
Posted here are many photos in an effort to share the inner beauty of these. Perhaps they just need to be seen in person.
These captivating African faces could be interpreted as a man and woman, but that is for you to decide.
Note, there is a small chip behind the ear in the larger (shown in photo) and there are natural flaws in the wood.
On the bottom of the smaller bust is a tag:
Tanzania, East Africa
7" x 5" x 3"
7.5" x 3.5"
