Chief’s head topped with two opposed birds. Early 21st century.

Traditional ‘cire perdue’ casting technique.

Many heads can be seen on the walls of the notables’ homes in Foumban (capital of the Bamoun). Some may reach very large sizes. They highlight the wealth and rank of the master of the house.

There are two main types of heads: with two birds. like this one, or with two crocodiles.

Size: 32 cm.
Weight: 1,287 g.
