This is a unique African Vintage Intricately Carved Ebony Family Tree from the Makonde Tribe from Tanzania. A style called Dimoongo (power of strength), which a local political zealot later named Ujamaa, was introduced by the late Roberto Yakobo Sangwani who migrated into Tanzania from Mozambique in the late 1950s. Ujamaa means community and family. This meaning is also echoed in the “Tree of Life” piece which speak to a common human ancestral heritage. This is why you often see symbols of support and generations of family. Overall, this piece brings out the community harmony the Makonde people strongly believe in. This wonderful piece would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home.
Has a beautiful patina
