Description
Makonde Shetani Sculpture, carved from a single piece of ebony, single figure with distorted face & body. The African Makonde people are originally from Southern Tanzania and Northern Mozambique and have a small presence in Kenya. Shetani style wood carvings ("devil" in Swahili} are expressions of Makonde mythology and spirits. This style uses the appearance of other worldly physical traits, such as large distorted facial or body features, and sometimes animals to signify the spirit realm. The essence of Shetani is thought to take five forms: human, mammal, fish, bird and reptile - your sculpture is the human and animal form. In some sculptures, there are also culturally significant symbols, such as a mother's breasts or calabashes, used to carry water
