Scultura (1) - Legno - Old male funerary figure of the Sakalava people - Sakalava - Madagascar
Prima metà XX secolo - Buone condizioni

"The Sakalava are a numerous tribe on the west coast of Madagascar. Their rectangular graves, fenced off with wooden edgings, are hidden in the ‘bush’ and may only be visited with the permission of the chief. At the edges of the graves, the Sakalava place figures that may carry the deceased through into the ancestral worlds."

The sculpture of the male figure is in a squating sitting position, legs apart, revealing his well-defined sexual organ. His arms appeared to rest on his knees, his face has well defined eyes and lips, a beard on the chin.

Will be well packed and shipped with tracking and trace.

Please look carefully to the pictures to avoid any disputes.
