Huge Suaga MAMBILA Anthropomorphic Dog Head Figure - Cameroun
Mambila art centers upon an association called Suaga.
It is primarily concerned with justice and supernatural cleansing within the community.
Masks and statues were kept hidden from the eyes of women in a net hung on the inside of a hut that was on stilts; it was guarded by the head of the family. The front wall of the hut was decorated with two figures, male on the right and female on the left, crowned by a rainbow and framed by the sun and the moon.
Nice condition for its use.
On a custom made wooden stand.
