    I’ve had this little sculpture for awhile. I believe it’s quite old, and carved out of travertine (Egyptian alabaster) but, otherwise, I know nothing about it. It’s unsigned, and searching online for a match has turned up nothing. Has anyone here seen anything like it before? I’d love to know it it’s American, African or something else. Thanks!

    I don't see it as Black Americana, I see a white guy with a big nose and huge lips .. Joy.

    Okay, somebody suggested I try searching with Google Lens, and it did turn up something very similar. What a great tool this app is!
