African Male Figurines:  Warrior Collection
Click to enlarge image(s)
©The Mayrich Company.  There seems to be no limits in making each warrior different from the other.  Poses and weapons vary: several figurines stand firmly erect, others stride with one foot forward, some lean back or twist to the right or to the left.  Weapons range from an unadorned staff to highly engraved  and polished "metal" blades.  There is a throwing knife with multiple blades and points, and straight-edged knives sheathed and unsheathed.  All  warriors wear modesty wraps:  some wraps are painted fabrics or animal skins with fringes, and some are just large leaves.  Wraps may be tied on or held in place with decorated beaded waistbands.  The greatest variety is shown in body art.  Some warriors sport keloidal facial scarification and tatoos, and layers of jewelry.  They wear collars thick and thin, pendants hanging from chains, "metal" coiled armbands, thigh bands, bracelets and anklets.  Not one of these warriors is ethnically African, but the generalized interpretation of "Africanness" makes their acquisition something to treasure.  Handcrafted resin, imported. Collected prior to 2006.
