Priced in Mexican Pesos.  The Fang peoples of the Republic of Gabon derive a sense of continuity with their past as well as a communal cohesiveness in the present through an ancestral cult known as reliquary figures, such as the one seen here, embody the qualities that the Fang admire most in people?namely, tranquility, vitality, and the ability to hold opposites in balance. These qualities are conveyed in these figures through the juxtaposition of an infant's large head with the developed body of an adult, and the contrast of a static, symmetrical pose and passive, expressionless face with the tension of bulging muscles on the arms and legs. Bieri figures are often embellished with elaborate coiffures, facial scarification, jewelry, horns, and other emblems of spiritual power.  It measures 17 1/2" tall.
