Mid 20th Century - Excellent condition
Kulango maternité - Fine Ancestress Figure with child. Scarification on head and body, nice patina.
The Kulango occupy a region in the Northwest Côte d'Ivoire that borders Burkina Faso and Ghana . The majority (90%) continue to practice their traditional ethnic religions. During disasters or hard times, the Kulango pray to the spirits of their ancestors and make offerings of mashed yams. The information pertaining to the context of the use of figures is wanting. Kulango figures are rare on the tribal market, especially these maternité figures with typical Kulango hair dress.

Item was as described and well packaged. Unfortunately, the wrong shipping tracking number was given, which showed that the item had never left Holland when in fact it was out for delivery.
Thanks very much

Objet conforme à la description.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.This is not the case. The parcel was sent registered to the address provided by the buyer. The courier service was unable to deliver the parcel because the buyer was never there. I contacted the courier service in France and told them not to return the parcel to me. After I contacted the buyer, it appeared he was not actually in France and I was requested to send the parcel to a different address!
