BAMILEKE, FIGURES, Cameroon

Royal ancestor figures like these were not worshipped but were honored and cared for. They were displayed for prestige during ceremonies. All are expressive, some are further embellished with beads.

Our Bamileke figures show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
