A very old female Moba Ancestor guardian figure with eroded surface consistent with long exposure outside as protector of a village. Sculpted with a noticeable lean. This would have represented an important ancestor figure. This piece displays the uncommon high caste collar, and is also rare as a female guardian. Circa 19th century or before. Mounted on a custom museum stand.
