FANG, CEREMONIAL GONG, 20", $600, Gabon, SOLD
This double gong has been enhanced with a special handle and striker, which would limit it to a ritual or ceremonial use. The carving imitates the proportions and feel of Bieri figures and heads
Despite its appearance, this object was probably made to be sold.
