Massive Masai

The Masai are an ancient African tribal people who maintain their roots and distinctive identity to this day in their homeland of Kenya, and northern Tanzania. The massive Masai Warrior sculpture above was carved in the mid-century from of a single ebony tree and stands as a testament to the lasting power of their cultural traditions. The costume and appearance they inhabit are much the same as their ancestors who emigrated to East Africa from The Sudan.
24" high, 14" wide, 14" deep
Because of the density of the wood, it weighs around 50lbs
