Original vintage large carved wood Senufo prosperity bird figure. Aged yellow painted finish with blue, white, and red polka dots and tribal designs. Modern stylized shape with curved features. Solid hand carved piece created from a single piece of iron wood. The Senufo prosperity bird is thought to represent the authority and leadership of the Poro Elders who initiate Junior Poro tribe members. These strong figures refer to both the physical and intellectual aspect of life. The long horn bill type beak protruding out and down to touch the suggested pregnant belly equals the dual life forces of male and female. Authentic piece from Ivory Coast.
