It is amazing how the wood has later so long. It looks like it is perfectly carved.

This piece looks like it has a almost formal like look. I'm surprised that people questioned if it was real of not. I think it looks like it defenetly isn't fake. This is also really cool because it is the oldest sub Saharan piece of art. It looks like he is riding a camel, but the camel is smaller than him. The detailing on the clothing of the man is very detailed. This is surprising the sculpture has lasted so long, saying that it is made partially of wood.

That is amazing how that was made from one block of wood.
