End XIXth, Early XXth- Good condition. Provenance Gaetan Schoonbroodt, Verviers

Provenance Gaetan Schoonbroodt, Verviers
Height= 29 cm
Material: Wood, shinny patina.
Age: End XIXth, Early XXth- Good condition
The is a typical standing figurine, bearded face and classically carved hair, the body well rendered with arms wrapped above the belly. Excellent patina. On a custom round base. Good early piece.
This primarily Angolan Lwena tribe lives partially in DRC and in Zambia. Led by a king, the Mwana Yamvo, the Lwena people support themselves from fishing in the wet plains at the source of the Zambeze River, in Angola.
The structure of Lwena art is largely based on that of the Chokwe, but their prestige objects includes a more refined use of full, round shapes. It is quite rare to find male Lwena figures, most of them are female.
