Wooden African Baga Nimba Statue NR Condition: "Nimba is the joy of living; it is the promise of abundant harvest"
The most important of the Baga art forms is the great mask, D'mba or Nimba.
The Baga Nimba, or D'mba, represents the abstraction of an ideal of the female role in society. The Nimba is essentially viewed as the vision of woman at her zenith of power, beauty, and affective presence; rather than a goddess or spirit. The typical Nimba form illustrates a woman that has been fertile, given birth to several children, and nurtured them to adulthood.
Dimensions (Approx): Length: 16 Inches Width: 10 Inches Height: 37 Inches Front legs of statue are broken, but can be mended with glue. As with all liquidation products this is sold 'as is' and what you see in the photo is what you are bidding on.
