Teke, conical load in clay

Male Téké statue, Democratic Republic of Congo, mad of wood having retained its conical load of clay, constituting a rare type within the body of Téké statuary.

The visual power of the imposing Bilongo magical charge and the deep used patina responds to the strength of the wide face invaded by fine linear scarifications, highlighting the geometric rigor of the hairstyle features.
