Comb with Standing Figure

Kaguru, Tanzania

44. Comb with Standing Figure. Kaguru Culture, Tanzania

This Kaguru comb is surmounted by a standing female figure. With one hand on her breast and the other cradling her stomach, she expresses a maternal gesture. Adorning the body of the comb are incised linear and cross-hatched decorations.

Among many cultures in Tanzania, elaborately carved combs such as this would have been given by men to women as bridal or dowry gifts.
