1152 - Bura-Asinda-Sikka crockery

The great, bulbous body has a pedestalled end containing a bored hole in the center; a design that makes it easy to wedge into the ground. At the top of the vessel is an abstract head with a “crown” of thick bands arching from around the head to under the neck, simulating braided hair.

1155 - Bura-Asinda-Sikka crockery

The elongated face comes to a point nearly touching the lower portion of the neck. Thick striated curved bands serve both as handles and as arms of the figure with small hands. On the “chest” are three rows of double bands connected by four segments of double bands in an oval shape placed horizontally down the center.

The vessel may have been used for a fertility cult, or perhaps as a burial offering. Simple in form, yet very powerful in effect, this vessel is a unique example of artistry that flourished in ancient Nigeria.

This highly-stylized and extraordinarily preserved terracotta figure comes from a region composed of three major sites at Bura, Asinda or Sikka in the countries of Burkina Faso and Niger. Stylistically this terracotta could be located to the greater Bura complex. Clay objects such as this were found in burials and have been dated to a range of years from the 3rd to the 11th centuries.

These recognized ancestors were said to be the 'children of the god's' who have gone to live with them.

4208 - Bura funerary head

H. 6.5 inches African terracotta figures are at once some of oldest recorded sculpture from Sub-Saharan Africa but equally some of the most problematical as well. They often are difficult to place among a people or culture and equally difficult to date. This figure comes from a region composed of three major sites at Bura, Asinda or Sikka in the countries of Burkina Faso and Niger. Stylistically this figure could be located to the greater Bura complex.

Wrongly identified as Akan on the site... Most Akan terracotta images were made by women. The people of most areas recognisze these terracotta heads as portraits. Until recently, many ethnic groups in thesouthern parts of this area commemorated deceased family members and royals with terracotta figural sculpture. Heads such as these, often broken from full figures, or from vessels with figurative elements, all had funerary contexts.

Terracotta sculptures there were first discovered in 1975 by a hunter, who noticed two figures protruding from a sandbank. His find launched an archaeological campaign by the University of Niamey, which located many more ceramic works at a site known as Asinda-Sika. This piece was thermoluminescence tested by Laboratory Ralf Kotalla (Germany), and found to be authentic, having been fired (created) between 988 and 1328 A.D. info@sujaro.com

Hemispherical pots and tall cylindrical vessels were buried with the opening facing down, and served to cover items of burial wealth, such as iron arrowheads, clothing, and ancestral relics.

Unlike the Nok terracottas, which have been found at numerous sites but share a common style, the Bura terracottas come from a single site but display an astonishing stylistic variety. Pottery found in Bura habitation sites was made from the same type of clay and was similarly ornamented as Bura funerary pottery, which suggests that both types were made by the same Bura potters.

Unlike the Nok terracottas, which have been found at numerous sites but share a common style, the Bura terracottas come from a single site but display an astonishing stylistic variety. Pottery found in Bura habitation sites was made from the same type of clay and was similarly ornamented as Bura funerary pottery, which suggests that both types were made by the same Bura potters.

Since the production of pottery in the central Sudan is usually the domain of women, the Bura terracottas were probably made by female artists. This piece was thermoluminescence tested by Laboratory Ralf Kotalla (Germany), and found to be authentic, having been fired (created) between 988 and 1328 A.D.

5337 - Bura-Asinda-Sikka terracotta head

The early terracottas from the Niger river region are known for their power and elemental simplicity. Often they are small heads made with such delicacy and restraint they seem a gift of nature; a thing rare and lovely that transcends the tangle of the world and occupies its own space of pure tranquility. This delightful head belongs in this exclusive category of sculpture which seem primitive, and yet very modern at the same time.

This portrait head of an ancestor from the Bura of Niger is beautifully expressive and sublimely restrained. Measuring 7” high by 3” wide, it has plaited hair and very wide-set eyes. The deep vertical furrows of the forehead emphasizes the minimalist features in a powerful manner.

5412 - Bura-Asinda-Sikka sculptured funerary grave-marker

Little is known of the Ancient Bura Peoples. As with all ancient African Terracotta, the "Bura Civilization" takes its name from the present day area where it was found, a necropolis north-west of Niamey, the capital of Niger.

5474 - Bura funerary reliquary from Niger

Many Bura pieces are either anthropomorphic or phallomorphic, and are often abstract. Intact figures with any detail below the neck are very rare and usually only the head survives. Ancient Bura Terra Cotta objects are typically ornate; their function is undetermined but most likely adorned large clay pots or vessels. Heads and or complete figures may have served as functional handles.

The Bura bear some relation to the Djenne Kingdom, the Koma, the Teneku and a satellite culture known as the Inland Niger Delta. Bura share certain characteristics with these other tribal groups; for our purposes, these include extensive ceramic and stone sculptural traditions. It is said that the Bura often buried their dead in tall, conical urns, often surmounted by small figures. H. 28.5" x D. 8.5" Weight: 17.35 pounds Sante Fe African Art (U.S.A.)
