Stylistic Yoruba ancestor figure from Nigeria. Eshu is a deity – orisha – in the Yoruba pantheon which is very widely celebrated.
Eshu is the messenger ; he is the mischievous, the cunning, the shrewd.

Ambiguous character, he is represented through feminine and masculine figures, in a good or bad situation ; it exists to provoke men and to allow questioning in order to seek the truth.
Good condition with a beautiful aged patina.
