Kongo-Yombe Power Figure, Democratic Republic of the Congo

Provenance

Allan Stone, New York

Catalogue Note

The iconography of a figure grasping its lower jaw with both hands to pull its mouth open is rare. For other examples of this iconography which seems to have been uniquely used by the Yombe see Lehuard (1989: 545-550, figs. J 19-1-2 - J 19-2-1).
