Lot N: 29
A Mumuye wooden sculpture with brown patina and traces of white pigment. The subject, a stylized and pointy humanoid figure, most likely represents a protective spirit. These sculptures, associated with various functions in Mumuye society, are used by healers and diviners. The ear lobes are perhaps the only clue to define the figure's gender, in this case the wide and dilated ear lobes indicate a female subject.
