    hi all. Yes it is grotesque,but i absolutely love it ! 8 inches high. I found one somewhat like it online but they didnt seem to know what its meant to represent. They identified it as being from Mali. I couldnt make that connection .Any and all input is appreciated.

    It's very cool, but I wouldn't be keeping it on my nightstand @johnnycb09

    About it ...

    FYI, the Zulu are in South Africa and the Bamana are in West Africa. They may have crossover in the mythology ... I do not know. I started to look for museum information, but dinner needs to get started. :)

    At first I thought it was pregnant, but it probably just ate someone.:eek::nailbiting::bag:

    The meal seems to have disagreed with the critter.
