Dear Matt,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a wooden sculpture with the measurements of 6’ height. The statue depicts a man and was made by an unknown artist in the second half of the 20th century. On the sculpture is an inscription "Made in Haiti" which localizes the origin of this piece.
Artworks of this artist were recently offered and sold on the international and national auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 300 to 600 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
