Vere Statuette (N° 25669)

African statuette depicting a subject with prominent features including bulbous eyes and a sagittal braid forming a loop. The subject adopts an unusually hunched posture, thumbs together extended forward.
The body is streaked with scarified marks. Chipped brown patina.
The Vere, Verre , Were, Duru-Verre, or even Dii, live in the northeast of Nigeria, in the state of Adamawa (former Gongola), and in the north of Cameroon. This very small population lives in circular huts grouped into fortified villages.
The Vere statuettes, whose function remains unknown, are rare, and present analogies with the works produced by the Mumuye, their close neighbors established between Nigeria and Cameroon.
