Huge Suaga MAMBILA Anthropomorphic Dog Head Figure - Cameroun
Mambila art centers upon an association called Suaga.
It is primarily concerned with justice and supernatural cleansing within the community.
Masks and statues were kept hidden from the eyes of women in a net hung on the inside of a hut that was on stilts; it was guarded by the head of the family. The front wall of the hut was decorated with two figures, male on the right and female on the left, crowned by a rainbow and framed by the sun and the moon.

Nice condition for its use.

On a custom made wooden stand.

    Dear Ragnar,
    I don't understand your NO reaction politic ; I told you I want to refund you totally because you are unhappy but you don't give any sign of life ; why.
    I like to work in honesty with my clients because before it is a business it first a passion I share with people all around the world for an Art who is still unknown.
    I wish you a nice evening and hope you will tell me your intentions so I can proceed further.
    Kindest regards,
    Olivier
