Brazil Indigenous Figures

These clay figures are from Northeastern Brazil, the Pernambuco region. They were made for the tourist market beginning in the 1950s and came from a woman's estate who traveled extensively throughout Central and South America. These native figures are in good vintage condition and measure approximately 9" high. A wire has been secured around the middle of each so that they may be hung on the wall as primitive wall art.
