Region/ country: Mali
Material: Wood
Period: Mid 20th century
Condition: Poor
Sold with stand: No
Dimensions: 60×20×0 cm

FUNCTION: used in agrarian rites, the crest hats commonly called antelope, are worn in pairs in dances during the planting and crops periods. This specific type called Sogonikun may be found in the southern Mali region of Banconi and represents a subtle alloy of Pangolin at the base and Antelope at the top.

POPULATION: Bamana from Mali, region of Banconi.

MATERIAL: light wood with a light honey patina.

SIZE: 60 cm.

PRESERVATION STATE: These very fine pieces are true sculptural feats and are enhanced with scarification on the flat parts; this one was collected in pieces and has been entirely restored because this model is rare nowadays, this is called an abandoned or damaged object, several places have been glued but everything is complete.

ORIGIN: KEITA dynasty, Kamablon dignitary in the Mandé country and then at the KEITA GALLERY in ‘Le Village des Antiquaires’ in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue where the piece will be visible during the sale.

Neat shipment via Colissimo with track & trace and with signature required upon receipt. The maximum security will be taken considering the fragility of the object.

    Déçu. Photos ne rendant pas compte de la pièce. Manque de matière très important non visible sur les photos. Les contre-plongées et flous rendent ce Boli beaucoup plus attractifs qu'il n'est

    désolé mais le manque de matière est du a l'usure d'usage et était signalé dans l'annonce quand aux photos j'ai fait au mieux avec des gros plans et des vues multiple; je ferais mieux la prochaine fois
