This wonderful bronze figure comes from the private collection of a 'sitting' Benin Chief 'Tunde', who has donated
it for the benefit of our aid project at an orphanage we help run at the Liberian / Cote D'Ivoire border.
His father aquired it as a gift from a Bamun Chief in the 1970's. Our Benin Chief and another wonderful Chief in Ghana
- Chief Nana Tetchi are instrumental in getting a network of Chiefs across West Africa to help us find rare and
exciting pieces to sell for our projects...
