Songye (N° 20949)

Fascinating in its form and formidable in the beauty that emanates from it, Songye statuary is inhabited by a strength, a power and a breath of air unequalled in Central Africa. In the creation of Songye statuary, three contributions complement each other: those of the blacksmith, the sculptor and the "nganga". Their actions combine to transform the sculptures into active, effective and eminently formidable forces. We find an unsuspected dimension going back to the very sources of the peoples of Central Africa. The human being confronts the energies of the universe and, through an esoteric teaching, generates a new social and political culture. The effigies remain silent witnesses of this mutation. In this book, nearly a thousand statues and statuettes have been gathered and studied with acuity on the morphological, stylistic and historical levels. François Neyt, a great specialist of Central African art, makes us discover the strength and power of this fascinating art. This fascinating book is a reference tool for art historians and collectors alike.
