African Carving Tree Of Life Nude Figure.
Makonde hand carved wood sculpture from Tanzania. Circa 1960's.
Carved figures in a tree of life statue carved from a single piece of heavy ebony blackwood. Ujamaa “Tree of Life” pieces speak of a common human ancestral heritage. This is why you often see symbols of support and generations of family.
Overall, the piece brings out the community harmony the Makonde people strongly believe in. A unique piece of art , the piece is in motion and almost seems to move while you look at it, photos are of the actual item.
