Early-Mid 20th Century, collected in the 1960's

A very large and stunning Dogon primordial couple statue, this beautiful early - mid 20th Century piece has real impact standing at 140cms tall. This was collected in the 1960's by a Dutch collector and then sold on, to which we obtained in 2013 from an old collection of a now sadly deceased UK collector, The style of this piece states that this is the craftsmanship of the Bombu-Toro, southern part of the Bandiagara Cliffs.
This does show ageing in the usual places legs, arms etc, the scarification's are so crisply carved, it is a lovely piece.
Dimensions: 140cm tall
Shipping: Tracked and signed postage and fully insured. If postage costs less than we quote we will refund the difference.

    La poulie est très belle avec patine d'utilisation, mais le masque Pwo n'a rien d'exceptinnel; Bonnes pièces .

    Jammer dat de klepel bij de grote bel ontbreekt, maar had ik zelf beter op de foto gekeken, was ik niet verrast. Wel een mooi item!
