This is an unusual fine, old Mwana hiti fertility doll from the Wajaramo tribe in Tanzania. Unusually well carved in a dark brown, shiny surfaced patina. The ‘doll’ itself is special. Note the abstract, cylindrical female body shape with the two small bulging breasts. The lofty crested hair style and the cute little face but also the fact that she is placed on a ‘pedestal’ in the shape of a tree-legged stool makes her more special. The term mwana hiti loosely means ‘child made of wood,’ and refers to iconic figures that depict a highly stylized female torso.
Wonderful condition and would be a great addition to your home and collection.
