Vere Bronze (N° 27447)

Ex-collection of African art from a Parisian gallery owner whose identity will be communicated to the buyer.
Pair of African bronzes depicting a couple with objects, in a dynamic posture. One of the male subject's feet is placed on that of his partner, as if to curb the momentum of the second subject. The bodies are streaked with scarifications. Irregular black patina, chips, residual verdigris pigments.
The Vere, Verre , Were, Duru-Verre, or even Dii, live in the northeast of Nigeria, in the state of Adamawa (former Gongola), and in the north of Cameroon. This very small population lives in circular huts grouped into fortified villages.
The Vere statuettes, whose function remains unknown, are rare, and present analogies with the works produced by the Mumuye, their close neighbors established between Nigeria and Cameroon.
