Kwere Figure

Tanzania

Fine Female Figure. Kwere Culture, Coastal Region of Tanzania

 

This female figure stands in an upright position with her hands resting on her upper legs. The upper band of the figure’s skirt is adorned with circular and V-shaped decorations. The figure's head - featuring circular-shaped ears - is adorned with a sweeping, multiple-parted coiffure.

The figure has been carved from a dense brown wood, which exhibits a beautiful worn surface patina. This patina is particularly prevalent around the facial area and arms, as a result of extensive handling over time.

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century (1930’s – 1940’s)
