This carved ivory figure of a woman on a wood display is signed by the artist "N Kuya" and dated 83. It stands 24cm high and comes from Zaire (now Congo). As we were told it is rumoured that this specific piece used to stand on the desk of the Presindent Mobuto Sese Seko 1965 to 1997. Whether it did or not?? It is a beautiful display piece and will definitely be a conversation starter. The ivory is in great condition, please view the pics as they form part of the description.
