      Well it is an interesting Yoruba sculpture from Nigeria!  Although most older ones are coloured; do you see some rests of colour?

      I think based on the facial scarification and the prominent breasts/woman who seems like she's giving birth that this is a  Yombe (DR Congo) sculpture...Possibly depicting one of the maternity groups (phemba). I'll keep looking into it, but it's very interesting.
