Janus-like Mambila Sculpture


1 in stock

SKU: IMG0352 Categories: ,


Mambila (or Mambilla) tribes have occupied the region of Mambila, in present-day Nigeria and Cameroon, for more than 4,000 years. The Mambila are still alive today, practicing many of the same rituals their ancestors practiced. Mambila artwork is highly distinctive and holds great value as a historic and cultural piece. The African Mambila tribe Janus sculpture from Spectrum Arts Gallery LLC depicts a man and a woman attached at the back, showing the unique artistic style of the Mambila while also portraying the duality of gender. Like other two-sided Janus sculptures, the two figures represent differences and opposites, while the connected space between them represents an opportunity for collective peace, mutual cooperative, communication and love.
