42 x 11 cm.
Wood, feathers, fabric.
Former Blaise Tribal Art, Brussels.
Cubist allure. The figure is armless. Instead, it presents a long ringed neck, of the most geometric ones. The figure is standing on a promontory.
This object is supposed to ward off evil curses and bad natural elements.
The patina presents wonderful wear. This object will delight collectors of atypical pieces, going against the tide of great classics.
Very expressive face, the hairdo made of feathers is still remaining, but it is very likely to be more recent than the piece itself.
Cf. L'art Africain, Kerchache, 2008.
