Bafo Ritual Figure (N° 18379)

African art from South West Cameroon.
Sculpted by members of the secret societies of the Bafo or Bafaw in southwestern Cameroon, this female figure whose oversized face evokes raw art. A wide mouth discovers rows of sharp teeth, a bleached look appears exorbiity, and, placed high, the pavilions taken off circular ears attract attention. She is wearing a simple textile beret. The long bust is carried by stocky legs under a sagging posterior. Engraved patterns are associated with traditional ethnic scarifications or tattoos. Locally abraded matte patina. Desication cracks.
Usage unknown but probably related to a fertility cult.
