Early 20th century - Nice condition

Nicely shaped Bateba 'thilkotina' male figure in hard & strong wood.

Estimated Age: 1920
Wood, Deep dusty organic patina (bloody libations)
Dimensions: 38cm ( 16'5") x 9cm x 11cm
Provenance: Private Belgian Collection.

Western Africa's Lobi are known for their sculpture art of ancestral cult objects as well as figures used in private practices.
Patina encrustedall over attests to the considerable length of time that the figure must have been used in a ritual context.
Here the body stretches out in slightly varied planes, the shoulders thrown back so as not to break the powerful dynamism of the lines. The vertical momentum of the body's volumes, reduced to their essence, is contrasted by the pregnant appearance of the face, its intense expression accentuated by the slight asymmetry of the features.

sold with custom metal stand.

Shipping via International express parcel (Colissimo international) or registered (Bpost)
