This is a tall and unusual Shango cult staff
from the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria, Features a cattle head on the double axe symbol.  This is the first time we have seen this feature. Shango is God of rambunctious behaviour, glorifying all things decadent and brash. Lightening and thunder are his motifs. The carving style is refined. The patina has remnants of pigments. There's a repair just below the axe head. In solid condition. Base included. We guarantee this item has been tribally used. Height approx 35 cm.
