This head is very strange its made from some kind of chalky clay I think! It is 2 1/2" high & looks like an african head but covered in nude ladies all entwined , theyre bodies making the various parts of his face arms make his lips , faces his ears , the back of his head has patterns all over and there is a chinese/ japanese mark on top left as in photo , I have tried to find this poss maker mark which looks similar to the japanese "Arita" mark but slightly different , it looks like an upside down Y with a short - at top and a longer _ half way down and a dot or o between the two legs of the up turned Y..
I really need help with this one as had it for 25 years at least and never seen one like it..
