Kaguru Figure

Tanzania - H: 90 CM

Tall Female Figure. Kaguru Culture, Tanzania

 

This tall figure stands upright with both hands holding its stomach in a maternal gesture.

The figure is characterised by a lot of movement in its form. It is also unusual to find traditional figures of this size in Tanzania. The surface of the figure exhibits a well-worn patina. Missing eroded sections on both feet suggest it once stood standing upright for a long period of time, possibly in a protected place within a household or under a covering outside in the village.

 

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century (1930’s)
