East Africa, Tanzania, Tabwa people, very attractive carved wooden statuette. Slender and dignified, the trunk is generously decorated with linear motifs. The Tabwa are an ethnic meta-group whose territory stretches from the south-east of the Democratic Republic of Congo through Zambia to Tanzania on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. The Tanzanian stylistic influence can be seen in the Tabwa art with its linear geometric motifs, while they borrowed from the Luba the tradition of prestigious objects such as spoons, stools and sticks. This very attractive female figure can be attributed more specifically to the Rungu sub-group, thanks to the use of light-colored wood and the presence of blackened scarification marks, typical elements of East Africa.
