Our ghostly Mumuye couple

Mostly one recognizes the very abstract Mumuye figures at once within african tribal art, although there is a large breadth at their forms. Couples of Mumuye figures aren’t very frequent. In the literature „ die Kunst des Schwarzen Afrika“ of J. Kerchache et al, Herder Publishing house 1989, we found a couple ( Number 121-122) .
We have a mumuye couple with a dark brown colour in our collection (see gallery number 167 and 168.) Our figures look much more ghostly than all other Mumuyes we know. The little birdlike head, the futuristic headgear, and the extrmely broad shoulders are so distinctive, that they really wide the spectrum of Mumuye figures.The Mumuye in the book of K.F.Sch
