Bamileke beaded heads (couple) 3.6feet / 110cm
$ 2,500.00 USD
What a fresh and fun couple of African beaded heads!
These head statues are made in West Africa, probably in Cameroon, but I found these 2 in a vintage market in Marrakech, Morocco. I am selling the couple because these 2 couldn't be separated, right? They would be perfect to highlight two symmetrical alcoves for example.
These heads are all handmade using clay as a main material and covered with colorful glass beads. Main color looks like a light green but it is actually a mix of blue and yellow beads in lines + yellow, blue and orange for the eyes, mouth and ears.
Both heads are approximately 3.6feet / 110cm tall.
IMPORTANT: The base of each head is an 8inches / 20cm circle and the heads are slightly curved as you can see on the pictures and video attached (one is more curved than the other). They can stand still BUT you may not want to have kids or pets playing around them!
These items are vintage, meaning that they have been used already. They will come with light signs of age, like those 2 stains you can spot on detailed pictures #16 and 19. I have extra pictures if you want to see other views of the heads.
Pictures were taken in my bright and all white studio in Marrakech. They have been edited but colors are accurate. Please take time to check all detailed pictures, so you can see the condition and beautiful work on these heads!
These items will be shipped with DHL or FedEX, for a fast and safe delivery.
