Tikar Bronze (N° 25803) Deposit sale

The Tikar inhabit the western part of central Cameroon which is located within the dense secondary forest of medium altitude, along the Mbam. Within this ecotone, the "tikar plain" (which takes its name from its current occupants) constitutes a depression which leans respectively to the west and to the north to the Mbam massif and to the first foothills of the Adamaoua plateau . From an ethnic point of view, the current boundaries of the Tikar country coincide with those of the Bamun to the west (Foumban), the Mambila to the northwest, the Foulbé to the south, the Babouté to the southeast (Yoko) and small groups individuals (Djenti, etc.) scattered across its borders. The structure of the kingdom is made up of a large chiefdom subdivided into districts: the residences of queens, children and notables. The notables constitute the hierarchy of the chiefdom. The ethnic groups making up the populations of the Cameroonian Grasslands produced an abundance of sculptures linked to the prestige of the Fon and the dignitaries of the different kingdoms. Beautiful brown patina, light green oxidation inlays.
