Ceremonial Figure

Nyamwezi, Tanzania

Fine Ceremonial Figure. Nyamwezi Culture, Tanzania

 This ceremonial figure would have been held at the midriff when used in traditional dance ceremonies to celebrate the end of year harvest, when dancers from each village would gather to compete for the prize of the best dancing troupe. 

 This figure exhibits a wonderfully naive, simplistic sculptural form, such the elongated shape of its neck. The head of the figure is slightly upturned, and features a pair of white beaded eyes.

 Carved from a hard brown wood, the surface of the figure has developed a worn, smooth patina due to its handling during dance ceremonies.

Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (Or Before)
