African art > Head rest > Mfini neck support

Mfini neck support (N° 21669)

Among the elements of traditional African furniture, this type of African neckrest has a smooth and satin mahogany patina. Its pure forms and its softly curved support give it, although resulting from the traditional African art, a contemporary design. Crack of desiccation on the base. Having been part of the Tio kingdom like the Tekes during the 15th century, the Mfinu became autonomous from the 19th century, grouped into villages headed by the "mbé ". Their sculptures are of the same type as those of the Teke, while differing somewhat. Their neck rests, such as this model, are renowned for their geometric structure.
