Tikar Statue (N° 27782)

Stylized subject offering a compressed morphology and whose flat skull can serve as a seat. A succession of perforations are arranged at the top in decorative patterns. Smooth brown patina, drying cracks.
The Tikar inhabit the western part of central Cameroon which is located within the dense secondary forest of medium altitude, along the Mbam. Within this ecotone, the "tikar plain" (which takes its name from its occupants) constitutes a depression which leans respectively to the west and to the north to the Mbam massif (and its tributaries Mapé and Kim) and to the first foothills of the Adamaoua plateau. The structure of the kingdom is made up of a large chiefdom subdivided into districts: the residences of queens, children and notables. The notables constitute the hierarchy of the chiefdom.
