Fertility statuette Ngbaka
African art > African Statues > Statue Ngbaka

The Ubangian crucible has produced many statuettes that share certain similarities. This primitive sculpture, on which the herminette strokes appear, was indicated to us as belonging to the Ngbaka . It is distinguished by a voluminous head in which the bulging forehead gives birth to a braided hairstyle pulled backwards. The look is just suggested by a linear recess between two circular samples marking the ears. Nostrils are dug under the large nasal volume dominating a thin horizontal mouth, conferring a determined appearance. Reduced arms, placed against the bust, emphasize the volume of the abdomen. This ancient statuette could be associated with fertility and fertility. The dark brown patina with a satin feel, lustrous by oil anointings, is locally abraded. Desication cracks.
