African Hand Carved Wooden Colonial Figures

About these African home decorative wood carved figures of art; known as Colonial Figures from the Ivory Coast and they are individually hand-carved from wood, representing an unusual mix of African and European cultures. There are no two men or woman alike and they stand on their own.  They also come in a large variety of colors and they are all dressed in “colonial clothes.”  The men either wear pith helmets (normally hand-carved by Christians) or Fez hats (mostly carved by Muslims.)  These colonial figures are more striking in pairs or groups of 3 or more.  There are a large range of available sizes
