Kronkronbali janus head Komaland

€290.00

African antique terracotta depicting a two-faced or janiform head. Koma (or Koma-Builsa) objects come from Ghana. This is an ancient civilization established in the region. Collectors of African art began to take an interest in these objects as a result of archaeological excavations begun in the 1970s.
The scientists' research has established that these objects were carved between the 13th and 19th centuries, so they would be contemporaries of Akan heads from Ghana and Djenne statues from Mali. The locals call these objects "kronkronbali" meaning "children of yesteryear". The Musée du Quai Branly has several objects of this type.
