Hand Carved African Fertility Idols

Our “Pick” this week is also a little unusual. It is from the same estate as last weeks “Pick” and they did a bit of traveling. This time we have for your consideration a pair of African Fertility Idols. Both figures are hand carved Ebony and stand about 18″ high.  I find it interesting that the female figure is done it the traditional style, clothed only in beads. While the male figure is dressed as a contemporary European with an umbrella. Read into it what ever you want but it does say a lot about how the culture has changed over the years.
