This naturalist figure presents an oval face attributed to the Solongo of Angola, the latter providing the Kongo clans. The glassy look of the pin-headed pupils is wide open which "is the prerogative of an elder. Indeed, only the middle-aged can stare at us with such insistence in order to alert us to problems or oddities."
This statue of a warrior evokes the subjugation of enemies, physical or immaterial.
Dark satin patina. Cracks of desiccation.
