Pende Axe

Old Pende ax from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We observe a worked handle surmounted by a head bearing black pigment on the cap and features. The blade is chiseled in copper and decorated.

In African art, there are many traditional axes. If they constitute weapons, they are also very often, just like knives, objects of prestige. A high dignitary will have the means to have a beautiful worked piece carved like this one bearing a blade of copper, a precious metal.

Brought back from Kinshasa in 1955.
