Kaguru Figure

Tanzania

Female Fetish Figure. Kaguru Culture, Tanzania

 

This female figure stands in an upright position, with a slightly upturned head. The figure has a pair of white glass beaded eyes, and a fetish hole features at the top of the head. The enlarged scale of the arms serves to increase the figure’s power and presence.

 

The figure has been carved from a dense brown wood, and exhibits a deep, worn surface patina.

 

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century
