Early 20th century - Reasonable Condition. Provenance Gaëtan Schoonbroodt.

Tschokwe Staff of a Chief- Angola- D.R.C. Congo.
Size: 52 cm
NO PRICE LIMIT
Wood, pyrolysed for darker color in some parts, hands of chief missing ( desacralised).
The open savanna in southern Democratic Republic of the Congo and northern Angola witnessed the rise of several wealthy and powerful states during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In these societies art objects are made to show the power of the chief. Chokwe chiefs and those of related peoples, such as the Songo and Ovimbundu, possess many articles--chairs, stools, ceremonial weapons, staffs of office, even tobacco pipes--elaborately carved with figures and scenes of village life. Careful attention is paid to accurate depiction, coiffures, and headdresses, such as the high one worn by the Chokwe chief himself during the Makishi Masquerade, as seen in this example.

Provenance: Gaëtan Schoonbroodt.

Can be viewed or picked up, if desired, at David Norden's African Antiques Shop in Antwerp.
