Cross River Akwanshi Monolith (N° 3595)

Although smaller, it is a monolithic votive head Ekoi Cross River called "Akwanshi." Rare piece for amateur African art.

The character's face is deeply carved in basalt. These pieces were carved in tribute to the dead legendary. Today, the tradition continues. Thus, when the spiritual leader of the villages Ekoi dies (the Ntoon), a representative stone is carved.
