Igala dignitary figure - SOLD OUT
In African tribal art, the works of the Benue region are much less referenced, it is difficult to be certain of their ethnic attributions. This skillfully sculpted female figure has a beautiful presence. Very interesting formatting of volumes. The African face is powerful, the deep expression.
The body is slender, the attitude serene. The tribal character wears a high detailed headdress reserved for people of high rank. Beautiful old patina very dark.
