758 - Sao zoomorphic statue

A rather vague but intriguing zoomorphic statue, with a sketch looking like a... plantigrad ! The only animal that could have this shape is the hyena, the hunchback appearing in profile. We remain prudent in our interpretation and may see in our part a masked dancer, wearing something around the neck and chest.

759 - Sao zoomorphic statue

This is a somewhat indefinable animal because of the erosion of the piece. It could be a lion or a buffalo. If it is a buffalo with visible horns and a tail on its back ? Or a lion, a large male with a great mane, howling, open mouthed, tail at its side ?

These objects seem to come from places of worship inside the mounds emerging from the low-lying plain running up to the southern edge of lake Chad. Zoomorphic items were produced from the 2nd century BC onwards, however it is only in the 12th and 13th centuries AD that large number of terracotta anthropomorphic and zoomorphic sculptures, measuring between 1.5 cm and 35 cm high, were produced.
