Rare statue , DRC ?

Post by Marcteun »

Looking for information on this 35cm high statue that weighs 1,1 kilo. I guess it was made in honour of an African chief. The lower part shows four tied up prisoners/slaves ?
Could it be Bakongo ?
tnx Marc

Hi Marc, Unfortunately this is a relatively modern fake or "decorative" piece with no historical value.
