Phemba Kongo maternity figure - SOLD OUT

Feminine statue celebrating women not only for her fertility for her ability to interact with spirits. Character in kneeling posture. The child is somewhat hidden from the viewer.
Beautiful anatomy of the face very expressive. The eyes are encrusted with white pigment to infuse life. The arms of the child form an embrace on the maternal bust. The meaning of the arms of the latter seem to be inverted offering a form of surrealism to this classic piece.
