Cavalier Putchu Guinadji - African bronze - Sao / Kotoko - Chad

Description
Cavalier Putchu Guinadji - African bronze - Sao / Kotoko - Chad
2nd half 20th century - Excellent condition, barely used with minimal signs of wear

The Sao are not an ethnic group so to speak.
They were a civilisation who is now extinct and who occupied a geographical area which covered Cameroon, Chad and Nigeria, between the 12th and the 14th centuries.

This marvellous bronze was clearly inspired by these very beautiful Sao creations.

Collected in situ.
