Vintage Carved African Statue Double Sided Man Woman 17″ Black Stained Heavy Wood

I do not have much information on this piece although some kind and wise people have suggested that it could be of Western / Central African or Sub-Saharan African origin. Someone else suggested it is ebony although I think it is stained black as the wood inside the crack is lighter.
It is about 17″ tall and features a male on one side and a female on the other. It has a large crack and is sold as is. There are no markings or signatures that I can see.

Please click on the pictures to view them larger in our Etsy shop AllTheRageVintageCA and to purchase.
Please inspect the photos carefully for details. This piece is sold as is with no returns.
Thank you. 🙂

This is only one statue. The first photo is a collage depicting the front, the side and the back.
