Mid-20th Century Hand Carved African Figure
“Can I please go toilet sir”
A very cool and unique hand carved amusing wooden African figure, standing in a similar pose to a child at school asking the teacher to go to the toilet. Humours and sculptural at the same time we felt. The wooden surface shows natural wear in the form of cracks across the item which gives it a very sculptural form even artistic in a crude manner. The figure weirdly enough has a single tooth in its mouth. This item stands alone and just a humorous fun and unique statue that made us smile as soon as we saw it.
Dimensions in inches: H 63 x W 12 x D 13.5
Condition: Aged surface through wear and tear is present across this item, fading of the surface is present in sections as shown in the photos provided, light weathering, natural cracks in the wood, damaged foot held together but an old screw (firm in place) and stands alone.
