This is a vintage Carved Standing Wood Colonial Statue from West and Central Africa. Colonial statues are a kind of wooden figurative sculpture within African art, which originated during the colonial period. These statues depict commonly European settlers (for example, civil servants, doctors, soldiers, and technicians) or they Europeanize the African middle class. The figures are often characterized by recurring motifs, such as helmets, suits, official uniforms or tobacco pipes, walking sticks and colorful hats. They are painted in bright colors or they are polished with plant-based paints. The main features of the African colonial statues are: the colors, the big dimensions, the Western costumes portraying different personalities of the social ladder. These statues highlight the strong influence of colonialism undertaken by Europeans in Africa in the 20th century. Looking at these works, we understand how the African artist is able to express his artistic inspiration, with his simple but direct aesthetic taste, representing the modern African people. A wonderful gift or addition to your collection.
