Re: [African_Arts] congo statue
Re: [African_Arts] congo statueThe mystery is solved. I received a message from G. VD Heuvel telling me that there is in the Bruneaf catalogue 2005 a very simular statue (page 98) attributed to Zande.

It is a copy of several things and it shows a sense of humour. I hope you did not pay too much for it? I would have bought it too in that case. M
P.S. I like the glasses ;o)

Subject: [African_Arts] congo statue
I made a trip in Congo last month and I've buyed several objects.
One of them is a real mystery for me.
Can someone help me the identify this small statue ? It's about 20 cm high (17 inc) and it looks authentic with signs of use and a good patina.
I think it's a fertility statue due the accent on the penis. Also this eyes are very mysterious for me.
