Beaded Tribal Heads from Cameroon

€69,00
Quantity must be 1 or more

Beautiful terracotta heads covered with beads, completely handmade in Cameroon.

Men make the base and the women decorate with beads.

In the past, the art of covering masks, statues or other objects with glass or ceramic beads was exclusively for the king, his family or the notables of his court. The beads could be of Venetian origin or of local production, with recycled glass, but their symbolism was always the same and that is to show the wealth of the sovereign.

The technique of coating prestigious objects with a layer of sparkling pearls has led to an art of great expressiveness and symbolism.
