good condition-First half XXth

Terracotta Sculpture of a Male Nude Man -IDOMA-- Nigeria.
good condition-First half XXth

Height= 23 cm Sold with a custom stand.
Provenance: Bob Germ, Hoboken.
Medium: Terracotta

A male figure of the Idoma tribe with hand on belly and one arm on the side and lobed headpiece carved standing.
Quite huge penis, symbol of fertility. The Idoma men are obliged by tradition to pound yam for their wives.
They strongly believe in the ‘Alekwu spirit’ a link between the living and the dead, and invisible watchdog of the family and communities while checkmating vices like adultery, theft and murder.
This fertility figure from the Idoma culture is perhaps one of the most fascinating from Benue State, Nigeria.

May be viewed or picked up in David Norden's Buy African Antiques Shop in Antwerp, by appointment.

Sold with written description of the tribe and private review by David Norden, a dealer with 25 years experience.
FREE SHIPPING. NO PRICE LIMIT. Sent registered with DPD Track & Trace.
