The back of the frame has been fitted with a French cleat for hanging. 

Mali, West Africa, 1900-25.

Condition: The back of the frame has been fitted with a painted wood panel to highlight the iron figures. There is a slight warp to the frame so the work protrudes from the wall somewhat. Wear commensurate with age and use.
