Voorvader figuur - Hout - Ngbaka - DR Congo

Omschrijving
Voorvader figuur - Hout - Ngbaka - DR Congo
Midden 20e eeuw - Goed

Appealing wooden Ngbaka figure from DR Congo. The artistic style of their statues and masks, which are related to the Ngbaka, is recognizable through their elongated features, a line of vertical scarification on the forehead and a pointed chin.
Figures representing the Ngbirondo spirit are kept in special huts where libations are poured over them. They can also be placed at the entrance to a village for apotropaic reasons.

Good condition with traces of tribal use and a great dark oily aged patina.

Provenance: former private collection from Belgium.

Shipping within 24 hours after the payment is received. Tracking number will be provided. Signature upon delivery. Fully insured.
May as well be viewed and picked up at the Asian African Art Gallery in Vessem (NL).
