Tribe: Dengese

Material: Wood

Age: Mid 20th

Provenance: Bah Abdoulaye Collection

Unlike most tribes in Africa the Dengese people of the Congo do not produce or use any masks. Theirfigurative statuary and palm wine cups though are held in high regard in the arts community. Their artistic endeavors are easily identified by distinctive scarification markings placed throughout the body of work. The tall portrait cup on display is an excellent example of Dengese extensive detailing. The entire cup has taken the form of the head and neck of the popular Dengese male ancestor that is subject of much of their statuary.
