A perfect example of African art

 Formerly in the collection of Prince Henrik of Denmark, 1934-2018, consort to Queen Margrethe of Denmark, his collection of African art formed over many years during his visits to Africa in his role as Ambassador of the Red Cross. This item was either presented to him or collected by him during his years of travel in Africa. His collection was displayed at the Gammel Holtgaard art museum in Holte for 3 months in 2009 and was then returned to their place in the royal couple's private apartments at Fredensborg Palace.
