Here is an outstanding African carving of a woman carrying a water bucket on her head with a child on each side and a baby on her back. The carving is very detailed and beautifully done.
There are a lot of interesting details. For example, note that the child on the left is wearing a hat or headdress while the child on the right is not.This piece was acquired by the previous owners on trip to Nigeria in the 1980's. There are some scrapes and imperfections here and there (see the last photo as an example), but overall this piece is in excellent condition! The dimensions are as follows.
Height: 93 (three inches short of 8', so it will fit in a room with 8' ceilings). Width and depth: 17" at the widest and deepest points, so the overall diameter is 17". Base: 17" wide by 15" deep.
