Decorative carving originating from Congo from the Pende tribe. The panel, part of an old doorpost has a geometrical motif. Carved in 1 piece of wood. The woman, also made of wood, has a red patina.

The Pende tribe made numerous masks, most of which are associated with teaching and initiation rituals. Mostly wooden objects are carved in the northwest part of the territory. Carved stools, sceptres, chairs and swords are used by chiefs and other important people to emphasize their power.

This panel was part of a private collection. When the fervent collector died, the entire collection was auctioned at a local auction in the Netherlands.

The photos are a part of the description.
Will be carefully packaged and shipped worldwide with Track & Trace.
