One of the amazing pieces on auction is stunning Lot 4, Kusu Statue, Democratic Republic of Congo. 17¾ in (45 cm) high. Proud owner Magusteiro says that this effigy of an ancestor personifies an inherent elegance. ‘It’s especially notable in the way the arms hang downwards, which is quite rare for this kind of statuary,’ – ‘You can also see it in the projection of the hands, the angular head and the vaulted headdress.’

One of our magnificent pieces is a stunning small Fang Figure from Gabon. Please get in touch with us for more information
The Fang people have never had political unity. The cohesion of the clans was maintained through religious and judicial associations such as the So and Ngil. At the bottom of their huts, in a dark and often smoky corner, the chiefs of lineage scrupulously stored their Byeri, the relic chests and tribal sculptures that “watched over them.”
We can find the Fang People in central Africa, South of Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, and a few in the Republic of Congo.
Pieces are sold with their certificates of authenticity.
