Older and big 3-faced BYERI reliquary Guardian of the Fang people from Gabon.

As some of the most powerful and best know sculptural forms emerging from Africa, Fang figures hold a prominent place in the history of African art. As reliquary guardians, Fang figures often appear as though they are slightly crouched with legs slightly bent or shown in a seated position with a narrow stick-like extension often reaching downwards from the buttocks. Often, the byeri reliquary held the bones of ancestors and were venerated through annual ceremonies at which they were present in the form of the sculptures. .

Materials: wood, basket, beads, feathers and animal horn.

Origine: Gabon
Height ca 67cm!!!!!

Out of a French private collection

This lot will be send with track and trace.

  • All good. Thank you! Was perhaps hoping to hear which “private collection” it came from, but it wasn’t part of the deal so not a problem.

    Enchère quelque peu au-dessus de la valeur de la pièce au vu de la pièce à réception selon moi

  • top transaction, on the whole a good piece, only the diadem lacks a little care (for my feel) in opposite to the detailed carved toes, might be a sign of authencity? Thank you very much
