Rare Bamana Male Shaman Mali African Africa Tribal, No Reserve For Sale
A very rare Bamana figure depicting a older male holding a horn and a pouch of ritualistic substance. The hunched shoulders are quite rare in Bamana art. The figure is quite impressive and has a wonderful presence. His face is serine and powerful. I hope the photos do him justice. Made from very heavy and dense wood. the last photo shows other items I am selling. Size: Height: 26" (66cm) width: 7" depth: 6" 11 lbs. (5kg)Provenance- Purchased from private Belgian collector several years ago. I have no other information. It is an outstanding example of African craftsmanship and artistry. I will never make a claim a specific age or tribal usage unless I have
iron-clad documentation (and as we all know even that can be false).
Have you noticed some sellers here who have sold over 4000 items and
have listed them all as "early 20th century?"
Additional Information: I have paid quite a bit for my collection over the years but will set a low starting price and let you decide what they are worth to you. The low starting price is not an indication of low value. These pieces are beautiful, quality collector’s items.Shipping: I am trying the shipping calculator again. You pay only the actual shipping charge (no handling fee). If the amount displayed looks wrong it probably is. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
I will gladly combine shipping to save you money on multiple items.
