Kaka altar mask (N° 18464)

Built on a hem-type structure with human features, a round-bump figure, with undersized legs and flanked by two fins with arms, stretches high. The long neck has regular annelures, and the head is covered with two mats curved backwards. Thick, crusty dark patina. Slight desication cracks.
The Kaka ethnic group, whose name fulani comes from German settlers, is located in a border area between Nigeria and Cameroon. Their statuary shows some influence from other ethnic groups such as the Mumuye, whose statues also have short, flexed legs topped with a slender body. Their very thick and crusty patina, their wide feet and the wide open mouth are however typical features to distinguish them from neighbouring ethnic groups. The function of these objects is little documented.
