    Statue representing a kneeling female character. This woman is very well adorned and must belong to a high social class. Indeed, the sculptor represented her with bracelets, anklets and an imposing necklace. Her symmetrical face follows traditional beauty standards. Her face is topped with a beautiful ogival headdress.
    The theme of the cup bearer is frequently illustrated in objects of worship linked to the orisha, or Yoruba pantheon.
    Wood with beautiful patina of use, remaining blue pigment. Some minor losses on the base. Slight erosion.
