Description

Rare terracotta doll from the Chiki-Chiki people of Cameroon. Beautifully decorated with antelope skin and glass beads. If you shake the doll you hear a nice sound.

Bamum fetishes are funny little benevolent figurines from Cameroon. Their rounded and expressive shapes are characteristic of the statuary of this ethnic group.
Good condition with a warm shiny aged patina.

Provenance: former private collection from Belgium.
