Makonde Figure

Tanzania

Mother and Child Figure. Makonde, Tanzania

The powerful presence of this Makonde mother and child figure from Tanzania emphasises the strength of the child bearer. The broad-shouldered mother, poised in an upright stance, carries her baby on her back. The mother has a pair of white beaded eyes, and rests both hands on her navel.

This mother and child figure, carved from a heavy brown wood, was collected in the 1980s by a diplomat living in East Africa.

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century
