 African MAHONGWE Bwete Reliquary - KOTA tribe - Gabon

A fine MAHONGWE Reliquary figure made in wood and fine copper wire. This figures represents the connection between the world of the living and the dead in African art.
Human remains of ancestors of high descent were kept in baskets that were guarded by this type of figures.

In this case the figure has a mask on the backside made out of copper plates. Very nice and detailed work.

Good condition, but this statue shows some usual wear and tear, see pictures.
