117 - Little seated man, hands on knees

Sokoto with very thin coating

Sokoto statue of approx. 2.000 years, seated position, hands on knees. The criteria remain classical, the statue is sober, smooth. From a stylistic point of view, the head presents the usual characteristics : large and bare forehead, hair hardly indicated by a bulge, arch of the eyebrows in the shape of a circumflex or a carriage top. They recall those of the Sokoto head in the Musée at the Quai Branly, Paris, since June 2006.

The eyes, the nostrils, the ears are pierced.
