140 - Crowned male head

Nok

Large male head with a lavish hairstyle comparable to the head of the Kingdom of Krinjabo in the Akan gallery. This piece has also suffered much from the ravages of time and the man has lost the acuity of one eye and the fineness of his facial traits. The only remaining visible detail is of a finely worked epaulette on his right shoulder and the traditional heavy necklace around his neck.

H. 30 cm x 1.16 cm x P. 15 cm
Era and civilization: Nok
