Rare Lozi neck-rest from Zambia.
It is Alfred Bertrand who published in 1898 this work "In the country of Ba-Rotsi" at the return of his southern exploration which led him to the sources of the Zambezi. He observed a very particular patina, an indelible trace of use on these Lozi neck rests.
This famous Swiss explorer criss-crossed southern Africa from 1895 to 1909, collecting a number of traditional objects or those copied from European examples. Alfred Bertrand quickly became a recognized collector and participated in the Swiss National Exhibition in 1896. He then created his own museum exhibiting the four to five hundred pieces he had collected.
