Ngbaka Minagende figure - SOLD OUT
African wooden statue with stylized shapes. The treatment of the body reveals a trunk from which the arms stand out in low relief. The completely remarkable facies testifies to the creativity of the sculptor who is integrated into a Ubangian culture. The headdress is finely chiseled. It is a male character whose umbilicus is extruded, symbol of filiation.
This remarkable figure of African art comes from the Ngbaka Minagende, in the north of the Congo. This is a typical example of superb quality and perfectly preserved. Statuettes of this type, like those of the Zande, were used as part of initiation rituals.
