Zande figure


This African Zande statue incorporates many typical elements of this much appreciated statuary.

There is a simple geometric body, a flattened and wide face, a cowry shell at the level of the umbilicus and above all a beautiful reddish patina obtained with the help of tukula, witness of a ritual use within the framework of the Mani initiatory society. .

The Zande and related peoples in northern D.R. Congo are noted in African art for their figurines with somewhat naïve simplified features.
