Stunning and artistic, a finely crafted pair of lovely native women head bust hard wood sculptures, featuring a smooth and highly polished finish. Large 8.5" tall size, heavy and substantial vintage African folk art.

This is a fabulous set of vintage hand carved sculptural wood carvings dating to the mid to late 1940s. The detail and craftsmanship is very fine, and both pieces are finished to a sensual smooth texture. The wood is very dense and heavy with a fine grain. The artist utilized the grain beautifully as it follows the contours of the women's features.

Both women wear necklaces, head scarves and earrings that sway and dangle from the ears. The breasts are lovely and finely detailed. Both women are looking away and down, perhaps in modesty. They are signed on the bottom with a burnished letter 'B' mark. Both have some very slight checking to the wood in the back. They measure an impressive 8.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide.

This is a very high quality pair of vintage 1940s hand carved nude women head bust wood bookends, rare and hard to find in this fine condition. Use as eye catching sculpture or put them to use in your library!
