Early 20th century - Good condition
Bangwa Bamum culture, Cameroon.
Wood and magical matters. Height: 40 cm.
Interesting figurine representing a feminine character. This sculpture was used in a ritual way, we can note traces of magical matters on the head and on the back. The top of the skull has a cavity. Beautiful sculpture filled with emotions. The wood is oxidised, attesting of the antiquity of this piece.
Charming piece of collection from the beginning of the 1900s, collected during the German colonial period. Is engraved on the calf: 69/38 - Kamerun - Bambulue. The inscription “Bambulue” certainly refers to the lake of the same name, located in the west of Cameroon, probably the place of origin of this figurine. Around 1920.
