Early to Mid 20th Century

A beautiful styled Dogon maternity figure, the characteristics of this wonderful piece suggest it is from the N'duleri region of the Bandiagara cliffs of Mali. Stunning symmetry of the facial features, heavily scarified tattooing to the breasts and her back. The baby she holds has had a few knocks here and there over the years and minor age related chips and scrapes around the outer of the figure and mainly to the base, there is a relatively new chip on the arm of this figure due to a flake of wood coming loose. All together an exquisite Dogon maternity figure large enough to have presence standing at 54cm tall.

    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!
