1998.28.12 (Comb)

Wooden African hair comb with 10 teeth. Just above the teeth a zig zag pattern is etched into the wood, and this is repeated just below the handle. The handle is a carved figure of a woman kneeling. The woman is wearing a dress and has her hands on her thighs, and has a pot on her head. Features such as her nose, lips, and breasts seem exaggerated. Color: BR
