Kaka Paternity (N° 18476)

Ex-collection Of African art, >This anthropomorphic figures were identified late, with some details evoking the Statuary Mumuye.Coated with a thick crusty patina, this figure offering an ovoid skull extended with a pointed beard is frozen in a slightly picked posture, arms in a circle arch accentuating the abdominal bulge. From the angle of the distant knees develop fully from the feet in half-pallets. A miniature figure appears to be clinging to the back of the character.
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.
