Ashanti statue (N° 21191)

This African statuette, seated on a stool, has a ringed neck, a headdress with parallel shells, and a straight back, hands on the knees. It is probably a queen or ancestor figure.
Lustrous two-tone patina. Cracks and abrasions. The Ashanti are one of the ethnic groups belonging to the Akan group, established on the former Gold Coast, Ghana since 1957. Producers of commemorative terracotta linked to funeral rites, the Akan have also mastered metal casting. This people consider the woman as the final arbiter of all decisions. Fertility and children are therefore the most common themes represented in Ashanti wood carvings. Maternity figures called esi mansa adorn royal or family altars. They frequently represent a woman nursing her child.
