An Akan terracotta funerary head
Ghana, the delicately rendered head, of round ovoid form with sensitive brow above thin slit-eyes, small pug nose, and thin peaceful lips, invoking a sense of serenity; a raised boss to the back of the head pierced for attachment. The graceful neck formed by undulating rings. Overall, variegated cream to medium-grey patina.
