This is a wonderful old Giryama Wooden Memorial Funerary Post from Kenya. The Giryama people of the Kenyan coast are known for their long-standing tradition of carved wooden mortuary posts. The grave posts, called kikangu, serve a number of functions within Giryama life. Most grave posts are carved of nzizi wood, an extremely hard wood that is also resistant to insect deterioration. The head features a circular pattern of triangles along the edge, which may symbolize radiating beams from a sunburst. mortuary posts feature figurative shapes.This Kikangu mortuary post is honoring ancestor spirits and serving as an intermediary between the world. This post would be a wonderful compliment to your home or collection.
