Teke Figure
Spectacular Teke Figure Filled with Magical bilongo, Democratic Republic of Congo, 1890-1910
Few Teke figures to enter the Western art market demonstrate the level of carving skill, aesthetic beauty, and impact conveyed by this figure. Vetted as antique and authentic by a committee of experts at Bruneaf in Brussels, this figure was featured in the Bruneaf catalogue and was a source of great enjoyment and discussion for collectors. The figure features exquisite detail throughout, artistic and naturalistic balance, and a polished, glowing patina, the result of fine finishing and years of human handling. A superb sculpture for any collector of objects of the highest quality and importance.
