This is a RARE carving of a monkey god. The style of nose/eyes, format, zig pattern and more indicate a provenance of the African country area of West Cameroon by the Bamileke people and transported to the southEastern USA sometime in the late 18th/early 19th century.
This and other West Cameroon carvings were uncovered in a former North Carolina 18th century slave tobacco plantation barn with connections to Charleston, South Carolina.
Other ORIGINAL carvings will soon be up for sale.
This rather well-preserved, completely UNIQUE artifact would look fabulous on a mantle or hanging on a wall. Own a piece of the past with this curiously, well-designed carving from a continent that continues to be so very far away for most people.
