Old domestic altar fetish. The lower part has disappeared. Despite this, the statue maintains a strong presence. The sculpture remains very harmonious and presents us with a classic style of the Fon people.
Hard, weathered wood covered with a slightly oozing sacrificial layer (especially on the front of the object).
