Female figure with child

National Museum of African Art
A female figure holds a child on her lap. The mother is seated on a low square stool made of palm ribs and supports the weight of the child with her left hand on his back and her right hand touching his knee. The child sits straddling the mother's left thigh. The child's right hand rests on the mother's back and the left hand rests on her left breast. Both figures are carved with identical head and facial features including a narrow head enhanced by an elaborately crested and plaited hair style, prominent forehead, long almond shaped eyes and an open mouth with filed upper and lower teeth. The figure's surface retains some of its original coating of red pigment especially in recessed areas.
