Anthropomorphic statue.
Mumuye, West Africa.
Early 20th century.
Wood.
Height: 95 cm - Width: 15 cm.
Sold with a stand.

The peculiarity of the Mumuye art is the wood treatment: voids are as important as solid wood areas. Also, the openwork parts between the neck and the long earlobes, the empty outlines separating the arms from the torso, or the large section distinguishing the legs are an integral part of their statuary.
This anthropomorphic figure is slender, a crest is topping its head, its fingers and feet are incised and his eyes worked with circular incisions.

Please note that the parcel will be heavy because it is an imposing piece of dense wood.
