1920-1940, African carved hard wood

1920-1940 Art Deco Profile statue - Hagenauer style
Buste of an important person: only important persons as chiefs and diviners wear this necklace with a lion tooth, which serve as a protective amulet.
This elegant buste is in fairly new condition, as the previous owner has cherished the statue. With its 37 cm height, 23 cm wide and 8 cm thickness it weights a little more than 2 kg.
As the statue is not signed neither inscripted with a name I can not say it IS a Hagenauer. However it exactly resembles his style.

Collecting Hagenauer
At the entry level are Hagenauer’s African stick figures, typically in tribal costume and carrying metal or wood implements; Hagenauer also made African and domestic animals that were produced in the 1920s, 1930s and again after World War 2 through to early 1950s, reflecting popular interest in the continuation of colonialism.
More desirable are the larger wood and metal African figures and busts, with stylized bodies and sculptural poses. The most valuable are distinctly Art Deco-style designs of African inspiration. Masks, some on a scale similar to authentic African masks, consist of multiple elements and materials; they often echo Pablo Picasso’s works.

Attention please: Delivery rates are subject to change. The rates mentioned on the extra page are maybe high; this is because they include insurance. Depending on the value of the sale, the price could go down, as I listed for maximum insurance. If you would like to check the cost upon closure of the auction, please go to PostNL
