Horned Animal Staff

Wagogo, Tanzania

Horned Animal Staff. Wagogo Culture, Tanzania

Surmounting this fine zoomorphic staff is the subtly tilted head of a carved horned animal with a pair of white metal eyes.

Staffs such as this would have been a symbol of the traditional owner's rank and prestige. When carried, the head of the animal would have rested on the owner's shoulder.

Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century
