DescriptionJABA or KORO, Nigeria
Ceremonial Cup Figure
Carved in the form of an abstracted human figure with small head and flattened torso, its abdomen with a large figure-eight shaped cup rising out of the center. While it is clear that cup-figures were the prerogative of chiefs or high ranking individuals, the actual use is unclear as many of these figures do not appear to have had the cup part of the body used or cleaned repeatedly as would have been the case if these were more utilitarian than ceremonial. This example exhibits exceptional balance between the constituent elements of the composition.
Height: 18 ¾ inches
Estimate: $800 - $1,200.
