Vili fetish on a tortoise pedestal
A rare sized Vili fetish, on a tortoise pedestal.
The figurine shows a lot of patina all over it, and this gives it a beautiful color.
The wood does have some cracks on some places, and a little hole on the side. But nothing serious (see photo’s).
(I just mention details so you get a good look on the figurine).
Take note of the uncommon hands: stuck together.
Good details on the face. It has white painted eyes.
Height: 23.5 cm / 9.2 inches
