Head Kronkronbali Komaland (N° 13660)

Ex-French tribal art collection.
Typical in African art, the kronkronbali Komaland heads, meaning " children of yesteryear", have marked features, often roughly. A mouth with luscious lips. The eyes, nose, eyebrows, beards and whiskers are, more often than not, formed of earthen bulges. The head, at the top, is concave and pierced.
These heads appear to have been sculpted as such, without bodies, reminiscent of the statuary Akan or Anyi. They look like a kind of cork, pressed in a circular way around tumuli, tombs themselves circular and covered with stones. Search subject.
The first ones were discovered in the 1970s and 1980s by German anthropologists who dated them between the 13th and 19th centuries. Base included.
