African Luba Wood Kneeling Figure Holding
African Luba Wood Kneeling Figure Holding An Offering Bowl, Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Kingdom of "Luba" or Luba Empire (1585-1889) was a pre-colonial Central African state that arose in the marshy grasslands of the Upemba Depression in what is now southern Democratic Republic of Congo. Estimated more than 50 yrs old. African art is a term typically used for the art of Sub-Saharan Africa. A few of the most popular traditional African art was produced by the tribal people of the Fang, Dan, Baoule, Dogon, Senoufo, Makonde, Bambara, and San. Most African sculpture was historically in wood and other natural materials that have not survived from earlier than a few centuries ago; older pottery figures can be found from a number of areas. Masks are important elements in the art of many peoples, along with human figures, often highly stylized and in vast variety of styles. Sculpture is most common among "groups of settled cultivators in the areas drained by the Niger and Congo rivers. Direct images of deities are relatively infrequent, but masks in particular were made for religious ceremonies. Later West African cultures developed bronze casting for reliefs, like the Benin Bronzes, to decorate palaces and for highly naturalistic royal heads from around the Yoruba town of Ife, in terracotta as well as metal, from the 12th to 14th centuries. Akan gold weights are a form of small metal sculptures produced over the period 1400Ð1900; some apparently represent proverbs, contributing a narrative element rare in African sculpture; and royal regalia included impressive gold sculptured elements. Many West African figures are used in religious rituals and are often coated with materials placed on them for ceremonial offerings. Eastern Africans, in many areas shorter of large timber to carve, are known for Tinga Tinga paintings and Makonde sculptures. There is also tradition of producing textile art. Modern Zimbabwean sculptors in soapstone have achieved considerable international success. Southern Africa's oldest known clay figures date from 400 to 600 AD and have cylindrical heads with a mixture of human and animal features. (Wikipedia) Size and/or Weight: See Measurement Photo.

Sterling Silver Earrings With Diamond Cut Onyx
Sterling Silver Earrings With Diamond Cut Onyx Stones. Base Stand Not Included. Silver Tested. Estimated more than 50 yrs old. 925 Sterling Silver consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. Tested Positive using Nitric Acid Chemical Scratch Test, Cloth Rub Test, Smell Test, and Magnet Test. Markings of 925 or Sterling stamp. The reason silver needs to be combined with other metals is that it is very difficult to make great designs with just pure silver, which is very soft and malleable. A bit of hardness has to be introduced by adding other metals such as copper. That is why jewelers are capable of making the most intricate an complex designs with 925 Sterling Silver. Silver is one of the most valuable elements next to gold. Mexico is the leading producer of sliver, followed by the United States, Canada, Australia, Spain, Peru, and Russia. Many countries do not require their precious metal items to be stamped and therefore we test to ensure we accurately represent the product. Size: See Ruler Photo.
