This is a spirit jar or smoke blowing human effigy pot. This was probably used in some type of ritual or ceremony. There is a blow hole in the back of the head and the smoke would have been blown through and came out the open mouth. This fine piece comes from the Glenn Leesman Collection and Glenn had it a very long time. We obtained a large portion of his collection which was mostly North American, but Gleen did have a few really cool African pieces. This piece is in excellent condition and appears to unrestored. It absolutley stands out in a glass case.
