19th and 20th century - Reasonable condition
Beautiful dramatic representations, displayed in the Tumba N'tadi (plural Mintadi) steatite ancestor figures that adorned the graves of these ancestors. These figurines date back to the 16th century and were made until around 1906 after which the custom ceased to exist for some unknown reason (perhaps the influence of missionaries?).
The N'tadi figure offered here is called "Fumani” ' figurine ' which refers to the wise, contemplative attitude. Is strongly reminds us of the Thinker (le Penseur) from Rodin.
It is a beautiful figure with a high feel-good factor, in good condition given the high age. Minor damage to the nose which is not bothersome.
Height of this beautiful and rare figure: 12.5 cm

Sollte Porto zweimal zahlen, weil Ware an Verkäufer zurückging.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Impossible to take this buyer serious: parcel has been shipped to the address provided by Catawiki - German Post, known to be extremely careful (gründlich!) couldn't find the address and returned the parcel to France. Afterwards buyer asked me to ship the parcel once more - at my expenses - to a revised address. Sorry, I'm not a complete fool: I told the buyer to pay once-more for the shipment and clail the extra shipping charges to the German Post. All this happened many months ago without any response from this buyer - expet for this ridiculous feedback right now. Absolute disgraceful!!
