Beautiful Punu ancestor figure from Gabon. It is thought they were used as prestige objects, during magical cermonies, or were kept alongside the ancestral bones in a reliquary box. Overall good condition with clear traces of tribal use. The back part of the left hand seemed to be restored. The body is covered with scarifications and white kaoliën (phembe).
Provenance: former private collection from Belgium.
