I was hoping I might get some imput as the type of wood this is and the possible orgin of this carving. I have aquired it from the estate of a deceased friend and have no idea where it has come from, what it is made from, and if it is worh trying to repair, as a piece has broken off the one side, as you can see.

African Motif, Carved locally(Africa) local wood.

 

Any identifying marks, tool marks, signature, date, etc ?

There does not seem to be. I can take another closer look. Also, it is very heavy. Is ther a way to tell if it is "Ironwood"?
