A WOOD MATERNITY
Ivory Coast, Attie
56,5 cm high
Provenance: Guido Gentili collection, acquired in the '70s.
This very elegant sculpture, fine in every detail, best represents the stylistic features of the Attie culture. The rounded face setting large eyes, elongated nose and half-open mouth, expresses a feeling of quiet and dignity that is well suited to a vital figure for the community as is the mother.
