Regular

A female Kala (Bamana) sculpture of the Saro region, standing on blockshaped feet, slightly bent legs, the torso with a protruding abdomen, the enormous breasts globular and , the arms close to the body, the hands swept backwards in the typical manner of most of the Kala figures, the columnar neck supporting an ovoid head with a domed three and not four-parted (!) coiffure, a small pointed mouth, beneath a slender nose, framed by metal eyes, scarification-patterns at head and torso; blackened sacrification-patina. Similar like the Gwandusu this Jonyeleni sculpture was ritual used every seven years. A high aged, excellent work of he Bamana-Kala region. A similar sculpture we collected several years before, but from the opposite side of the Niger river. Both statues belong to the same family, who are living in different parts of the Bamana country. It is the first time we have found such a peculiarity: The same sculpture with a different hairdress. This sculpture is coming from an old African collection an was purchased from the Antique Gallery of the Donwahi Foundation, Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
