Early 20th century - Reasonable Condition. Provenance Jan Kusters.

This is a beautiful genuine and delicate statue of a Hemba Ancestor.
Provenance: Collected in situ at the end of the 60's by a Dutchman. After that in Jan Kusters collection.
The hole on top is filled with an offering to the statue honouring the ancestor.
The Hemba people live in the southeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and are farmers and hunters. They live in vast plains surrounded by mountains. Only since the mid-1970s, François Neyt identified the Hemba statuary as a different style than that of the Luba.
In the seventeenth century, Hemba societies were developing east of the Luba.

Hemba ancestor figures are regarded as one of the finest expressions of African art. Because of their idealized realism and well balanced proportions.
Age: early XXth century.
NIEMBO STYLE
Size: 41 cm
