Rita Addo Zakour celebrates Shango with the staff-like design of this admirable sculpture.

The sese wood sculpture is carved by hand featuring two expressive faces looking in opposite directions. Painted by hand, the sculpture is finished with white clay for an aged appearance.

"Bracelet nicely made"

Nice with black and white outfits but note it was a bit large for my narrow wrist and had to remove a bead.
