Seller: davidstores (577) 100%, Location: Zurich, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 323297405408 FEATURED HERE IS A MASTER-PIECE OF RARE AND AUTHENTIC AFRICAN ART NOT SEEN OR FOUND ELSEWHERE. A ON-OF-ITS-KIND PIECE OF AUTHENTIC ART. THE WORD "MAKONDE" MEANS "FAMILY TREE" OR "TREE OF LIFE" - IT IS ALSO THE NAME OF A TRIBE IN SOUTH-EAST AFRICA WHOSE CULTURAL WORK IS THAT OF CRAFTSMANSHIP. THE MAKONDE FAMILY TREE HOWEVER IS NOT SOMETHING THEY CARVE CONSCIOUSLY - WHAT MAKES A PIECE LIKE THIS A MASTER-PIECE IS THE FACT THAT A FIGURE LIKE THIS IS CARVED BY A NUMBER OF CRAFTSMEN AND THE SHAPE AND FORM COMES FROM THEIR HALLUCINATIONS AS THEY CARVE THESE PIECES UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF MIND-ALTERING PSYCHOACTIVE SUBSTANCES. ONCE COMPLETED, THEY CANNOT RECALL HAVING MADE THESE AND CANNOT REPRODUCE ANOTHER ONE EVEN REMOTELY SIMILAR. WHAT IS EVEN MORE INTERESTING IS THE FACT THAT THE COMPLETION OF SUCH RARE AND UNIQUE PIECES TAKES MONTHS AND AFTER THE ROUGH COMPLETION, THEY ARE GIVEN THE FINISHING TOUCHES AND POLISHING WHICH BRINGS OUT THE AMAZING FEATURE AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE IMAGES ABOVE. ALSO, THE MAKONDE SCULPTURE IS CARVED FROM THE EBONY WOOD - EBONY WOOD IS THE MOST DENSE, HARDEST AND HEAVIEST WOOD ON THE PLANET WHICH MAKES IT ALL THE MORE DIFFICULT TO CARVE BY HAND. ALSO, THE EBONY WOOD AS THE NAME SUGGESTS, IS DEEP-DARK BROWN IN COLOR IN IN ITS NATURAL STATE AND HAS A REGULAR COLORED "CREAMISH" BARK ON THE OUTSIDE. IT IS THE ONLY WOOD OF THIS COLOR WHERE AS OTHER WOODS ARE OF "BEIGE" OR "LIGHT BROWN" COLOR - THE REGULAR WOOD AS WE KNOW IT. THESE FIGURINES ARE MASTER-PIECES AND ONLY ONES OF THEIR KIND. THIS TOWERING SCULPTURE IS ABOUT 3 AND A HALF FEET (42") APPROXIMATELY TALL AND WEIGHS A GOOD 75 ODD POUNDS. A TREASURE BEYOND MEASURE FOR AN ART COLLECTOR OR INDIVIDUALS WITH RICH TASTE FOR PERSONAL HOME OR OFFICE DECOR. THANKS FOR WATCHING !!
