    Another feature seems to be that the women often seem to be with child... maybe a good luck fertility thing?
    ...Miss Angola appears to have a number of features in common with Mr. Mombasa: distended bellies and flipper feet...probably due to poor hygiene...

    Two examples of Mola layered fabric art acquired during my travels in Central America in the early 70s. These two pieces are from the Kuna indians of Panama..

    I got this one in Laos at a street market. I loved the colors it’s painted on wood.

    My weird primitive woodcarving. Purchased on Sulawesi though they said it came from one of the islands off West Papua.

    As a printer in my previous life I can really appreciate the work that went into that. Looks to be over 5 colours which requires very skilled carvers and very skilled press operators. It's very nice.

    Was having a Spring clean yesterday and found a suitcase full of pictures I'd not seen for several years, I packed them away again in bubble wrap with a letter to the kids saying this is your inheritance ...
    A few examples..

    Our family lived in E.Africa a long time back and we have something very similar in Ebony, it’s a weird little man sat crouching just like that but with a tribal mask on, and a spear or two! Wonder why they travelled so far over the Indian Ocean?!

    ...if it's not too personal a question: where in E. Africa? Are you familiar with Makonde ebony wood carving?

    ^^ Knowsitlike and Misskit:
    They look a bit like two of the three wise monkeys: Speak no evil (hand near the mouth), hear no evil (hand near the ears) and the third "see no evil" missing.

    ^ not personal at all as it is 35 odd years ago now! We lived in Dar and we have quite a few carvings in Ebony, the stacked family trees and the like do they count? @Nev they remind me of Ubud monkey forest but the thing we have is more like a little gremlin with some definite voodoo vibes he’s certainly not cute

    I bought this years ago at some place that imported stuff from Asia I think this is from Indonesia.
    The piece of wood is interesting.

    ...thanks...I bought a number of Makonde ebony carvings after traveling through Tanzania and ending up in Dar (1970s)...the wood is still beautiful after all these years...

    Any ideas about this one ? There's what's probably a sword missing from the top left hand.
    Material is bronze / gun metal.
