Dan statue

Dan people – Ivory Coast – 19th Century – Wood
59 cm


Private collection, Spain

Rachel Montagut, Barcelona


These imposing female figure, called lü me, “wooden person”, are neither ancestral figures nor representations of spirits. They are living portraits.

This is a rare and beautiful example of refinement, sensuality and character, whose powerful features and modeling are enhanced by the deep, intense black patina.
