Statue Vouvi - SOLD OUT

The traditional art of Gabon

Like other ethnic groups in Gabon, the Vuvi / Vouvi have carved figures related to ancestor worship. We recognize the geometric facies with an expressive triangular mouth.
The entire room is covered with a whitish patina related to layers of kaolin applied during rituals.
This statue dating from the mid-twentieth century, with light wood and rounded shapes will delight collectors of objects from Gabon.
