African art - Koma:




Komaland head
African art > Terracotta, jar, amphora, funerary urn > Komaland head

Typical in African art, the Kronkronbali Komaland heads, meaning "children of yesteryear", have marked features, often coarse. A mouth with full lips. The eyes, nose, eyebrows, beards and whiskers are usually formed by earthen bulges. The head, at the top, is concave and pierced.
These heads seem to have been sculpted as such, without a body, reminiscent of Akan or Anyi statuary. They have the appearance of a sort of plug, sunk into the ground in a circular fashion around tumuli, tombs that are themselves circular and covered with stones. Object of excavations. The first ones were discovered in the years 1970-80 by German anthropologists who dated them between the XIII° and XIX° century.
