Chokwe Figure

Angola

Female Figure. Lwena/Chokwe, Angola-Zambia Border Region

 

This female figure, carved from a brown hard wood, stands in an upright stance. The positioning of this figure’s arms - clasped behind her back and resting on her rear- is a defining characteristic of this piece. The figure’s face is adorned with brass tacks and small cross-shaped markings below the cheeks. Finely engraved lines decorate the surface of her carved coiffure. 

 

Ex Private Collection, Belgium

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century
