This is a lovely carved wood statue of a mother sitting and breastfeeding her child. Her hair is stained black, the rest of the wood is either rubbed or stained. She is from my private collection of statues that depict the mother/child breastfeeding relationship around the world. I acquired her in a private sale through eBay.
12 3/4 inches tall; 4 1/2 inches wide; 4 1/2 inches deep. She weights 1 pound and 5.8 ounces

The presented object appears to be a wooden carving with 12 3/4
inches in height. The statue depicts an African woman nursing her child in her arms. This motif of the nursing mother has a long tradition in African cultures. This piece was made in the second half of the 20th century.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images.
A fair market estimation would be between 50 to 100 USD.
This estimate is based on recently recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
