Kuyu Staff Head, Republic of the Congo, Africa - For Sale

Kuyu Staff Head, Republic of the Congo, Africa
Price: $1250.00
Kuyu Staff heads are carried during dances to honor the mythological serpent Ebongo, a tutelary spirit of the Kuyu. Our example is unusually artistic. The turban and collar are very detailed and the face refined. The enamel paint, while worn is bright, making this an attractive art object as well as a fine addition to a collection. As is the case with any we have encountered, the staff has been shortened and a removable base added by a former collector. C.1960. H:19.5" x W:7" on base 20.5" See an example in African Art in American Collections, P382.
