Early 20th Century Tribal Kuba or Binji Pipe, D.R. Congo


A beautiful interplay of raised planes and clustered incisions structures this impressive cephalomorphic Congolese pipe. Flowing line work textures the head, which joins with the bridge of the robust nose to present a strong, hatchet-like profile. The nose, mouth and ears project dramatically away from the cylindrical core of the head, emphasizing a sense of sculptural dimension in the portrait. The pipe has an old burn one side of stem and some cracks but in stabile condition. Includes a custom base.
