202 - Akan or Asante funerary head

Ghana or Ivory Coast

This is a very beautiful head inspiring calm and serenity. The eyes are closed, the features of the face are regular and perfectly crafted. The curve of the eyebrow is particularly beautiful, all the details are precise and the piece gives the real impression of harmony. The hairstyle consists of small braids laid out with care, and five scarifications, undoubtedly tribal, mark the face: three on the forehead, and one on each cheek.

It is quite an attractive statue.
