Koro Statuette (N° 27017)

Female statuette whose abdomen would form a container for beer or palm wine, administered during ritual ceremonies. The nose extends with a sagittal crest like a helmet. Two-tone grainy patina. Desiccation cracks.
It is in the northern part of the interior of Nigeria that the Koro settled, alongside the Waja, Mama, Hausa, and Dakakari. Especially famous for their masks decorated with red abrus seeds embodying the ancestors, they also use this type of cup for ritual offerings during funerals, during sacrifices and masked ceremonies.
