Around 1970 - Reasonable condition, see pictures and description

A pair of rare ancestor figurines from the Akha, sub-group Lomi.
The Akha people live scattered in the northern mountain areas of Viet Nam, Laos, Thailand, Burma and in the South of China.

This authentic statues are placed at the entrance gate of their village during the annual ritual feast of the Akha.
The statues represent the ancestors who have made agreements with the spirits long ago about the distribution of the land indicating where the human world begins and thus where it is taboo for spirits. In addition, the figurines have a fertility function, which is often explicitly depicted in the sexual organs.
Collected middle 1980s.
Height: 85 and 86 cm.
Traces if wear and tear, reasonable condition.

    Superbe objet.Je ne suis pas convaincu qu'il s'agisse d'un masque de proue de canoe:plutôt un masque cérémoniel,vu la taille,les orifices faciaux et les troux latéraux,ce qui est beaucoup mieux!
