A Fine Suku Figure, Democratic Republic of Congo/Angola, Late 19th early 20th century, ex private Belgian Collection, ex Roger Bourahimou Gallery

Statuettes (M-mbwoolu-tsyo)
These statuettes can be either a male or female figure in an upright posture. They each have variations in coiffure and headgear and relate to leadership and elders: Difference in the hair parting or how it is shaped, Bweni hats that have a rising crest and protruding k***s or a projecting brim distinctive of land-chiefs, Mpu skull caps of the regional chiefs in Suku. Another form is the kambaandzia miter-like form that looks like a pointed cone. All of these seem to be the symbols of leadership and authority but the headgear refers to older leaders. Stances and gestures can also be interpreted. Hands-to-chin gesture common signifies reflection, sadness, and grief with both the Yaka and Suku people. Both hands together at the upper chin gesture can pertain to a person confessing guilt or swearing secrecy.

Cassera Gallery South Presents: BLUE A JOURNEY THROUGH THE AGES

Celebrating the color BLUE with examples spanning 2000 years. Modern • Contemporary • Mid Century • Antique • Ancient

FEBRUARY 1 – MARCH 15, 2021 Cassera Gallery South, Stanwood WA

Link in Bio

Maskette, 3.5 inches from the Tsimshian tribe of the NW Coast. The Dating has been established to the early part of the 19th century around 1820. The pigment used is vivianite, A VERY interesting and unique material. The fact that vivianite is on the little mask tells us it's a shaman's maskette. Vivianite was used only for certain types of objects that denoted wealth or supernatural powers.
Vivianite does range into green shades, though, so quite often it and celadonite are confused. SOLD. — at Cassera Arts Premiers - Est. 1960.

NW Coast Mask, circa 1880.
Face of Dzunuk'wa or Tsonoqua
Kwakwaka'wakw or Nuu-chah-nulth peoples, British Columbia.

In Potlatch ceremonials Tsonoqua appears as a feast dish figure and as masks worn in dances. These are often of giant size. Also as 'gikaml', chief's mask, which is usually of moderate size. The giantess, Tsonoqua, has a character which is threatening; long, bushy, unkempt hair, either slitted eyes or large open sockets, and pursed mouth through which she utters the paralysing cry 'hu hu'. Her face is all black with heavy eyebrows. She is a giver of wealth, power, and good fortune, and is a family crest figure. Another aspect of Tsonoqua was to control the magic 'water of life', a gift she bestowed on a family that wrested her secrets from her. Her importance may be seen in her magical Sisiutl house beams and posts with many filled boxes of treasure within. She is one of a large family of giants who lived in the faraway mountains and woods. A myth tells of the basket she carried on her back in which she collected children, taking them home to eat. The children usually outwitted her, however, because she was slow-moving.

Available. Price on request

Detail of a #Teke power figure from the #DRCongo The figure depicted here represents a powerful ancestor (inkwii). Master sculptors would have sold such small-scale works in the marketplace, fashioning larger scale works for the benefit of an entire community on commission. By empowering and activating a figure representing an ancestor through the addition of bonga, a link between the living and the dead is formed, ensuring the peaceful functioning of society. #africanart
