• Huge black lacquered Akan comb (4)
  • Africa
  • Ghana
  • Width : 6 1/2 inch
  • Height : 17 1/2 inch
  • Depth : 1 3/4 inch
  • Huge comb (17' 1/2) with a stunning design: an up-side-down bird on the plate between two loops, a Janus man and a woman head with elaborate hairstyles. This comb may have been carved for a ceremony like a wedding or so. It seems too personal to feature ancestor heads.
