8. Mother and Child Figure

Makonde

Tanzania

H: 31cm

DESCRIPTION

The powerful presence of this Makonde mother and child figure emphasises the strength of the child bearer. The broad-shouldered mother, poised in an upright stance, carries her baby on her back. The mother has a pair of white beaded eyes, and rests both hands on her stomach.

This mother and child figure, carved from a heavy brown wood, was collected in the 1980s by a diplomat living in East Africa.
