A nice early Bamana figurative metal staff from Mali, with three bells. I assume one is missing as the handle is there but the fourth bell is missing. It is mounted on a wood base and fits into a hole. Nice detail. These three pieces we have posted work well in any decorative scheme. These were acquired from a collection from a private collection in Amsterdam, Holland 15 years ago and if more information is needed the provenance Maxwell Price is an expert and prominent collector.
