Congolese Holy Family

Congolese Holy Family

This lovely Holy Family is carved out of wenge wood (millettia laurentii). This wood which is native to the Democratic Republic of the Congo is very dark in color with a distinctive and strong pattern. The flowing lines of this piece are enhanced by the linear lines of the wood.
