3rd quarter of the 20th century - Very good condition

Height : 33 x 27 cm

Among bronze animal depictions in Benin art the leopard appears most frequently. As "king of the forest" his reputation is as great as that of the Oba, or king. Killing a leopard was a privilege of the Oba, who had his own association of leopard hunters equipped with "special powers" which enabled them to kill these animals without losing their own lives"

    J'ai reçu la jarre Mangbetu cassée.
    J'ai contacté le vendeur à plusieurs reprises pour avoir un arrangement mais sans succès. Je n'ai jamais eu de réponses.

    er staat dat de harp in zeer mooie staat is, maar er ontbreekt een stukje hout waar een snaar aan vast gemaakt moet worden.
