These are fabulous African Carved Wood Figurative House Posts from the Mambila Tribal People of Cameroon and Nigeria. Mambila art centers upon an association called suaga. It is primarily concerned with justice and supernatural cleansing within the community. Mambila figures embody ancestors who, according to their beliefs, are responsible for the clan's wealth. Mambila figures share exaggerated features and curving planes. The sculpted figures are usually squat and disproportional. The heads often have heart-shaped faces and are decorated with small wooden pegs. The legs are slightly bent and the arms are brought forward and upward. Figures like these were known as tadep and were used by the Suaga association. These two house posts are magnificent and would be a great addition to your collection or home.
