    I know nothing about this. It is made out of some kind of wood. It is 14.5” tall the face is 6” across. Is it ceremonial. Where might it be from and how old does it appear to be. Thank you

      It is very strange looking. Just googled it there are a lot of them all different... Thank you very much for the info. I now no what it’s called will do more looking to see if I can come up with the age of it...

      Nice example of an Asante (Ashanti) Akua'ba. Still being made, age is very difficult to determine and without provenance has little yo do with $ value. I collected a few about 20 years ago and have seen many more since. See: https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/art-africa/west-africa/ghana/a/akuaba-female-figure-akan-peoples
