Scepter - Hout - Yoruba - Nigeria

Omschrijving
Scepter - Hout - Yoruba - Nigeria
Begin 20e eeuw - Goed

Ceremonial Sceptres, Yoruba Culture, Nigeria Height: 44 cm.

Powerful couple of figures which belong to the pantheon of Voodoo gods. They represent Shango, the god of war and thunder. The sculpture is strong with sharp angles, decomposed geometric forms and is a simplified representation. Through these characteristics, the sculptor knew how to confer undeniable presence to these figures. A beautiful dry patina, please note the crust on the head of the masculine figure. The wood is oxidised, a sign of these pieces’ antiquity. Beautiful, ancient and authentic pieces of collection, with character. Around 1930.

Provenance:
- Private collection, Germany.
