Own the art that inspired Picasso and so many other 20th century artists........the sculpture originating in Africa. This is a later 20th century hand-made piece. Note the painted eyebrow area, the drilled rows of holes, and the interesting surface and color. I don't know the area of the continent from which this came but I suppose a specialist collector could tell immediately. It's a very interesting and decorative piece for the home. Size is approximately 12" by 6 1/2" by 3".

Figural form illustrating a proverb. A tubular element with a tiny human head each end is folded on itself and bound in the middle with a band accented with a tiny silver inlay. A variation on a common theme with these emphasizing that while we all have individual wants and needs, we have a common element in our humanism (sometimes characterized as a common stomach). Unusually complex and intricate for these. From the Sir Cecil Armitage Collection.

This is a heavy-for-its size (about six pounds) sculpture in a heavy, dark wood like mahogany (ironwood?), measuring about 10" high by about 5" on a side. In addition to the dark heavy wood, there are carved teeth of bone, and carefully applied white paint detail in the eyes. Carved into the base are the words "Ngambela Mataa". I have googled the term and it seems to be applied to a figure who was in Zambia in the late 19th century to as late as 1928, when there was some murder there...
