A SUPER STYLISED IRON ALTAR FIGURE, MOBA TRIBE OF TOGO ( No 2439 )

An exceptional iron altar figure from the moba people of Northern Togo. Superb sculptural form featuring two stylised human forms connected and bound with a talismanic bundle at their waist. An oxidised patina with cowrie shell talisman. Hand forged with great skill, using very basic blacksmith instruments. Would benefit from a base as it does not stand unassisted. In good condition. We guarantee that this item has been tribally used. H approx 14cm
