NTUMU STYLE, EQUATORIAL GUINEA OR GABON
HEIGHT 52 CM
Natural patina, almost white wood. Exquisite carving, minimalistic style. Two simple copper bands around forearms, holding cup. There is a big crack in the wood from the side of the face right down the middle of the body, otherwise in excellent condition with superb detail. The wood has turned relatively light from age. The figure came from the village of Mayumba close to the Congo border. A genuinely rare and unusual old sculpture.
