Bwende figure, Democratic Republic of the Congo
H. 8 1/16 in
Provenance :
- Former collection Bertrand Goy
The male figure, an idealized image of the hunting ancestor, holds a rifle in his left hand, and his right hand, which is missing, would have been brandishing a knife or a pulverin. This refined sculpture presents the characteristic features of the group, with porcelain encrusted eyes, a beautiful asymmetrical headdress and ventral scarification.
