Item Description

Two earlier 20th century West African carvings from the Bamana/ Bambara tribe. The Ancestor figures both feature powerful traditional form and fine age/ use patina. The larger carving depicts a female in proud and defiant stance with her hands on hips, possibly pregnant. The other carving has characteristics of both male and female, a representation of the union of the two sexes said to embody the perfect being, the same belief held by the Bamana’s neighbors, the Dogon.
Both carvings are in all original condition with the larger carving having a stable age crack near the stomach, and age borne losses to the back of the feet. The smaller carving has loss to one foot. Both pieces present exceptionally well.
The larger carving measures 21.25 inches high (on a custom lacquered wood base), and the smaller carving is 15” high.
