Fine Mother and Child

Nyamwezi. Tanzania. £3400

Fine Mother and Child Maternity Figure. Nyamwezi Culture, Tanzania

Carved from a hard wood, this mother and child figure has a wonderful primal presence. The figure's slightly bent knees convey the sense of a mother supporting the weight of her baby, who she carries on her back. The mother, who is depicted with an open-mouth, rests her hands on her belly in a gesture that emphasises her maternity. Tightly clinging to her back is a small child, who wraps its legs around her mother's waist, and nestles its head into the mothers shoulder. The figure's roughly cut and worn surface compliments the presence of the piece.

Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (Or Before)
