    This African hand carved bone figurative pendant measures 3.625" (92 mm) high and 0.75" (19 mm) in width at the base and is characterized by a long face with a pointed chin; a square based nose; straight line mouth; a pointed head with a lattice border; and body with varying rows of decoration (dots in circles; concentric lines; lattice; and chevrons).  There is a 0.09" (2.3) mm hole that runs horizontally through the top.  The bone appears to have been colored with an amber dye and the incised patterns have been emphasized in a deep brown (not black as they appear in the photograph).  Country and tribe of origin and age are unknown.  (This was purchased from an artist who has had the pendant for over 25 years.)  In very good condition.
