Product Description

The Azande, as they exist today, are the unification of many Sudanic people. The name “Azande” is spelled with many variations such as, Asande, Assandeh, Asandeh, Badjande, Bazende, Basingi, Sande and Sadeh. Azande is used when refering to an individual or as an adjective. The Azande reside in the Sudan, Central African Republic and Zaire. Class structure is clearly defined in Azande society. There is the ruling class, the Avungara, the middle classmen, Mbomu, who are the descendents of the conquering Azande and the commoners, the Auro, who are the descendents of the conquered people or strangers. The Azande have a nemesis with whom they have been at war with since the 18th century called the Manbetu. Despite this conflict, the art work of the two cultures display great similarities. This Azande pair was crafted from a beautiful dark hardwood. Years of handling has given the top of the head, chest and arm areas a glossy sheen. A naturally aged fiber cord is featured around the neck, back and waist-hip area. The figures are thought to have been placed on the elders table during tribal meetings. The price is for the pair.

Dimensions: The figures are 10 inches tall x 5 1/2  inches wide x 5 1/2 inches deep.
