Sherbro, Sierre Leone, 16-19th C.
William Siegmann - Ex. African art Curator for the Brooklyn
Museum of Art
A more stylized example of a Kissi stone Pomdo. This example has a more enigmatic and stronger facial expression in comparison to the other Kissi stone on offer during this update. The body flows nicely with legs curled underneath themselves and hands placed just under the chin. The stone is dark and varied in patina; with extreme erosion from exposure to the elements and its early vintage. This is a diminutive authentic artifact from a culture that existed hundreds of years ago.
This stone figure stands 4.75 in tall.
