WOOD, HEIGHT 200CM
At a royal ceremony quite recently, the couple were officially introduced and elevated as members of the royal court by King Sultan Ibrahim Mbobo Mbobo in Foumban. In a quite complicated scenario, the brother is the official leader of his clan, but is not allowed to make any decisions without approval by his sister. Both decided to relinquish the tusk which were still at the original homestead of Princess Nji from her marriage in Tikar land. They approached my friend Salifou Mboumbou Mpetit to find a new home. The wood has become softer over the years. and some sections have tropical lichen grown onto them, but this makes the piece even more exciting.
