Sandalwood figures "The Inseparable", medium
It is fair to say that these beautiful, slender wooden figures are "cut from the same wood" - and inseparable at that. Overall, this wooden sculpture is adorned with four figures.
Sandalwood sculptures from Mozambique
The local wood species Tamboti is called African sandalwood. This rough and fibrous type of wood is particularly popular in Mozambique to carve these decorative figures that seem to grow out of the wood. When the wooden sculpture is polished, it acquires a reddish-brown luster that contrasts beautifully with the unfinished base of the statuette.
Wooden figures with attention to detail
In addition, the sandalwood figures are embellished by the artists from Mozambique with color accents and some are provided with small fabric headscarves. This loving and detailed equipment of the sandalwood sculptures makes them unique and unmistakable. They are much more than just a fantastically beautiful Africa decoration, but rather true works of art from southern Africa.
Two different versions to choose from
The sandalwood figures "The Inseparable" are available in two different versions. Version 1 with headscarves for all figures, version 2 partly with and partly without headscarves. Please make your selection based on the product options.
Dimensions: approx. 21 x 8 x 3 cm
Each wooden sculpture is unique
Please note that each of these wooden figures is of course made entirely by hand in Mozambique. Since each figure is unique, slight deviations from pictures and descriptions in terms of size, colour, design and weight are largely unavoidable.
