Bangwa Statue (N° 27714) Deposit sale

In African art , commemorative sculptures of titled kings, queens, princesses and servants, as well as parents of twins, the Bangwa form the reputation of this small kingdom within the large Bamileke people in western Cameroon.
We observe the influence of the Bamileke on the Bangwa statuary without the use of pearls. The body posture is classical, lower and upper limbs flexed.
Commanded by the leaders they embody, the Bangwa statues refer to fertility but also to power and combativeness. They are positioned in pairs on either side of the induction chairs during notable meetings.
Thick brown cracked patina. Minor shards.  

Possibility of payment in 2x (2x 245.0 €)
