17"W x 14"D x 58"H - Africa - Wood

A mystical bird among the Senufo, it is a symbol of fertility and is believed to be the mythological founder of the Senufo people. The statues showcase elongated beaks connected to a swollen belly, alluding to pregnancy representing the dual forces of male and female procreation. The surrounding open wings exhibit geometrical designs, and they are a representation of how the hornbill birds protect their young when the wings are extended. Most certainly a conversation piece. Having one of these wondrous hand-sculpted Senufo birds will bring prosperity and happiness into your environment.
