Early 20th century - Good condition
Janus fetish, Luba Hemba culture, D.R Congo. H. 22 cm.
Interesting janus fetish from D.R Congo. The sculpture is well carved, alive and sensitive. The faces are expressive, the glances deep, and the mouths are half-open. A part of the sculpture is missing, damaged by xylophagous insects. However, the sculpture is solid and does not deteriorate. The wood is oxidised, the patina is wonderful. An ancient label is glued on the side of the stand, we can read “Baluba” on it. A beautiful ancient piece of collection. Around 1920.
An invoice, including a picture of the object, as well as a description, will be delivered upon request.
