African wood abstract working woman

Size: 48cm (H)

A unique African wood carving of an wooden working woman hand carved out of a single piece of Teke wood with the faceless woman carrying a pot on her head. The abstract form of this Teke wooden tribal woman has attracted many collectors of both African arts as well as abstract art.

The Teke wood is a light brown wood that is polished to a smooth shine and is really hard which makes it an excellent wood for the artists to work with. The faceless woman originates from Tanzania where the artist uses his talent to hand carve this beautiful woman.

This is a truly beautiful work of art.

Each African wooden working woman is an "original" work of art, individually handmade, no two are exactly alike which adds to the value of each piece. The original nature of tribal art will be reflected by variances from the African love couple as shown, each piece of a specific style is similar, but not identical.
