vroeg 20e eeuw - zeldaam mooi

De Ovimbudu stam is gerelateerd aan Chokwe, Luena, Songo en Imbagala stammen en leven in Angola - geisoleerd - op de Benguela hoogvlakte waar ze zich voornamelijk bezig houden met landbouw en veeteelt. De meest voorkomende kunstuitingen zijn gebruiksvoorwerpen als kammen pijpen en prestige-scepters. Veel zeldzamer zijn de Cisola initiatie/ vruchtsbaarheids beelden waarvan hier een zeldzaam mooi voorbeeld: vroeg 20e eeuw (est. 1920 - 1940) - oude Engelse collectie - in een uitmuntende staat - sterker nog: de allermooiste die ik ooit ben tegengekomen.
Het beeld is niet perfekt - enkele tribale reparaties, wormgaatjes, ouderdomsslijtage.... maar dit alles versterkt slechts de authenticiteit en de ongelofelijk sterke expressie van dit verbluffend mooie beeld! Hoofd met een onschuldige, kinderlijke uitdrukking - mede geaccentueerd door de priemende ogen in de diep verzonken oogkassen, subtiele scarificaties op de wangen, en de timide toegeknepen mond; schitterende typerende haardracht; deemoedige houding met neerhangede armen uitlopend in brede waaiervormige handen. Prominente borsten met scarificaties welke vanaf de schouders via de borsten teruglopen naar de rug; voeten rudimentair vierkant afgebeeld.
Dit fantastisch, ontroerend mooie en dramatische beeld valt op door het prachtige onschuldige hoofd dat proportioneel veel te groot is in verhouding tot het lichaam - kenmerkend voor de Ovimbudu Cisola beelden - en door de kralenketting gefixeerd aan de rok/ schaamlap - beide attributen ongetwijfeld later aangebracht op instigatie van een Belgische of Duitse missionaris die aanstoot nam aan de schaamteloze naaktheid van deze beelden.

Zoals reeds vermeld: oude Engels collectie - kijk naar de foto's om kennis te nemen van de ongelofelijke krachtige schoonheid van dit zeldzame beeld - museale kwaliteit.

Hoogte: 42 cm - basis 9 x 9 cm

  • Your concern about my lost shipment and subsequent follow up ensured I received my package finally. Thanks so much for all your help, I truly appreciate it. Bonus for me, the textile is beautiful!

    el vendedor no disponía de la mercancía el domicilio que lo vendía, sino que hubo que esperar que lo trajera desde Bélgica, lo cual ha retrasado la entrega en más de un mes.

    Ridiculous feedback - it was very clear in the offer object had to be collected (due to weight) in Maaseik - frontier Belgium-Netherlands - even after 6 weeks buyer failed to arrange for transport!

    Excuses - heb de box gekocht als absoluut nieuw - heb meerdere lp's bekeken: absoluut nieuw - f*ck dat er een exemplaar bij zat dat achteraf niet 'mint' blijkt te zijn! Wat kan ik doen om dit goed te maken?

    Ps.: evengoed een schitterde box!

    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!!
