I have a large Makonde Statue collection for sale (175 pieces). All pieces can be viewed here:
Asking $25,000 for the whole collection.
All pieces date prior to 1985, and most were carved in the 1960's and 1970's.
Some are signed by the artists who made them. All are carved from wood and
contain natural defects inherent in natural materials, including cracks, splits,
irregularities of color and of heart and sap wood, as well as bark, etc. Some of
the pieces are damaged and a few are missing parts of the original sculpture.
Some of the pieces have been repaired. All of the pieces in the collection, and
the collection as a collection, are sold in "AS-IS" condition with NO guarantee
or warrantee of any kind.
Does anyone have any recommendations what would be the best venue for selling it?
