Old Male Ancestor Figure - Wood - Ubangi region - NGBAKA / NGBANDI - DR Congo

Old Male Ancestor Figure

- Private collection, Paris, France
- UK collection

Until very recently, Ubangian sculpture was the last major unstudied area of art from sub-Saharan Africa. Thanks to Jan-Lodewijk Grootaers' important exhibition and encyclopedic 2007 monograph Ubangi: Art and Cultures from the African Heartland, this rich cultural ground has now begun opening up. The Ubangi region in central Africa spans three different countries: the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Sudan. It houses a cluster of societies with strong historical, linguistic, and anthropological interrelations.
