Mumuye Statue

The Mumuye statuary, revealed in Europe in the late 1960s, was immediately regarded as one of the most inventive expressions of African art.
Relations are essential between the arts of the body and statuary: hairstyle in helmets, stretched ears, their main characteristic, unique in African art, is the systematic openwork between the body and the arms which form a volute around the bust thin and cylindrical. The legs are short and powerful.
Mumuye statuary embodies tutelary spirits.
Very nice attitude.
