Iginga figurine Lega - SOLD OUT
Small African statue of Lega, related to the Bwami
African Iginga type statuette owned by a high-ranking insider of the Bwami community. Among lega, statuettes, statuettes and masks in wood and ivory are linked to aphorisms or proverbs that correspond to moral and social codes inculcated in the initiates throughout their initiations in the Bwami that governs the political and social life of the lega company. One time is not customary, the person represented has small bone arms. Pretty piece that will delight any collector of primitive art particularly interested in Lega.
This tribal statuette is offered by our art gallery at a price much lower than the value estimated by the experts of Catawiki, enjoy it.
