First half of the 20th century. One old big crack in the middle of the face and part of the body : not disturbing the beauty.

Height 64 cm.
Width 15 cm.
Depth 14 cm.

This piece comes from the very important Collection of Professor in Psychology van Qualkelbeen from the University of Ghent;

Wood, copper and sacrificial material.

Called Byeri or Bieri, figures like these were guardians of the enshrined relics of important ancestors. Sitting on top of the containers, they were also consulted for aid and protection. They are notable for their child-like proportions contrasted with a muscular, poised vigilance.

  • My purchased lot was delayed by the postal service but the seller contacted me and re-arranged postage.
    When it did arrive, safely, my lot was as good as described.
    Great service!
    Thank you.
