Is this a reproduction?

Post by Leo220 »

Glad to have discovered this wonderful place.

This is an interestingly shaped Fang female figure.
I found it while searching for images on the web. Is this a reproduction or a historical piece?
Can it be identified from the patina?

Yes, indeed a fake made for market.. the "patina" is artificial.. sorry
The real thing is very rare and expensive, that's why they are faked like this.
