Fipa Statuette (N° 20731)

Vigorously carved in a light wood, this female figure has summary features. A few gestures were enough to create an expressive statuette, defined by its simplicity. Gilded light wood, velvety surface. Cracks. In the southern coastal region of Tanzania, around Dar-es-Salam, a relatively homogeneous group has produced most of the artistic output. It includes the Swahili, Kaguru, Doé, Kwéré, Luguru, Zaramo, Kami. The second region is formed by a territory covering the south of Tanzania to Mozambique, where some Makonde and Yao, Ngindo, Mwéra, and Makua live. In northeastern Tanzania, the Chaga, Paré, Chamba, Zigua, Maasai, Iraqw, Gogo, and Héhé have an artistic production with similarities to Malagasy and Batak art, which could be explained by trade by sea. The Luo, Kuria, Haya and Ziba, the Kéréwé, Karagwé, Sukuma and Nyamézi are established in the central western and central region of Tanzania. Along the shores of Lakes Tanganyika and Nyasa, and Lake Nyassa, the Ha, Jiji, Bendé, Tongwé, Holoholo, Fipa, Manbwé, Kondé, Kisi, and Ngoni produced figurative statues, terracotta sculptures, and masks inset with teeth.
