  • Creator: Africa, Nigeria, Nok culture\r\nCulture: African; West African; Nigerian; Nok\r\nTitle: Head\r\nWork Type: Sculpture\r\nDate: c. 600 BC-250\r\nMaterial: terracotta\r\nMeasurements: Overall: 38.2cm x 20cm\r\nStyle Period: Nok Culture\r\nDescription: The Nok culture of central Nigeria initiated sub-Saharan Africa's earliest known sculptural tradition by around 600 BC. Artists modeled coarse-grained clay by hand to produce human and animal effigies of unknown function. This exceptionally well-preserved head probably belonged to a life-size seated figure, posed with knees drawn up and chin resting on a forearm. The artist combined boldly exaggerated proportions with carefully rendered details. These include indentations on the eyelids and brows, scarification on the cheeks, and teeth inside the parted lips.\r\nDescription: Detail\r\nRepository: The Cleveland Museum of Art\r\nRepository: Cleveland, Ohio, USA\r\nRepository: Andrew R. and Martha Holden Jennings Fund\r\nRepository: 1995.21\r\nRepository: http://www.clemusart.com/\r\nCollection: The Cleveland Museum of Art Collection\r\nCollection: Formerly in The AMICO Library\r\nID Number: CMA_.1995.21\r\nSource: Data from: The Cleveland Museum of Art\r\nRights: This image was provided by The Cleveland Museum of Art.

  • Creator: Zaire, Chiloango River Valley, Yombe people\r\nCreator: African; Central African; Congolese; Yombe\r\nCreator: African; Central African; Congolese\r\nTitle: Standing male figure with nails (Nkisi Nkonde)\r\nWork Type: Sculpture\r\nDate: 19th Century\r\nMaterial: Wood, iron, raffia, pigment, kaolin, red camwood (tukula)\r\nMeasurements: 44 x 15 5/8 x 1 3/8 in. (111.8 x 39.7 x 3.5 cm.)\r\nDescription: <p>This large, very rare, and monumental Kongo figure is from a Yombe group residing in the Chiloango River valley. It is a generic type called <i>nkisi,</i> containers for medicines prepared and inserted by a ritual specialist, a <i>nganga.</i> A <i>nkisi</i> is a cloth bundle or carved figure, or even the consecrated body of a chief. This figure wears a chief's hat and anklets, and a type of raffia skirt worn by mediators.</p><p>Medicines of graveyard earth and animal and vegetal matter help the ritual specialist activate the figure with spirit force that protects, heals, or destroys. Specifically, this figure is a <i>nkisi nkondi,</i> which is embedded with nails that represent sealed oaths taken in a law court, or <i>mambu,</i> historically linked to chieftancies. It is a type of <i>nkisi nkondi</i> with specific attributes: a large cowrie shell fixed at the center of a rounded resin pack on the abdomen; a resin pack around the chin; the <i>pakalala</i> stance (hands on hips, arms akimbo); head thrust forward; mouth open; and inlaid porcelain eyes. On the head is a chief's hat of authority incised with specific geometric motifs, and the face is painted with white kaolin and red camwood pigment in specific patterns. This style of <i>nkisi nkondi,</i> represented by an important corpus of eight known works, is considered the product of one artist or workshop and one ritual specialist.</p><p><i>Dallas Museum of Art: A Guide to the Collection,</i> page 154</p>\r\nDescription: Full View\r\nRepository: Dallas Museum of Art\r\nRepository: Dallas, Texas, USA\r\nRepository: Dallas Museum of Art, Foundation for the Arts Collection, gift of the McDermott Foundation\r\nRepository: 1996.184.FA\r\nRepository: http://www.dallasmuseumofart.org/\r\nCollection: Dallas Museum of Art Collection\r\nCollection: Formerly in The AMICO Library\r\nID Number: DMA_.1996.184.FA\r\nSource: Data From: Dallas Museum of Art\r\nRights: This image was provided by Dallas Museum of Art.

    3. 3. Slab stela of the kings son, Wepemnofret; paintedlimestoneGiza, cemetery 1200, tomb 1201; Old Kingdom, Dynasty4, reign of Khufu, ca. 2625-2500 B.C.Collected by George Reisner, 1905.6-19825"This carved stone relief depicts the Kings sonWepemnofret seated at an offering table. His elite statusis demonstrated by his extensive titulary dress (valancedwig, noble beard, and leopard-skin wrap), and use of astool made of costly wood. The text on the stelacontains his numerous titles, a list of the provisionsthought essential for his Afterlife existence (includingincense, eye paint, oils, wine, and foodstuffs), and a listof the linen that may have been included in his burial.Slab stelae derive exclusively from Giza, where theywere installed in the eastern facades of mastaba tombslocated in the elite cemeteries immediately west of theGreat Pyramid. Their markedly uniform style anddecorative scheme suggest they were the products of(at most) two generations of artists. The high quality oftheir execution indicates that they were royal gifts to aselect group of royal relatives and officers. Of the onlyfifteen examples (four in the Hearst Museum) known tohave survived, that of Wepemnofret stands out as oneof the largest, the best preserved, most complex, andone of the earliest examples." Cathleen Keller (Curatorof Egyptian Art and Epigraphy).
    4. 4. “Curator’s Choice”Head of a one-eyed man, sarcophagus fragment,marbleItaly, Rome; ca. 250 A.D.8–4274“Highly polished and deftly exploiting the shifting effectsof light to achieve a sense of quivering immediacy, thishead is a masterpiece of the “impressionist” portraitstyle of the mid third century A.D. The convulsiveclosure of the man’s right eye dominates the entire playof his facial musculature. Living in an age when thirtyemperors ruled Rome in fifty years and the empire wastorn by war and insurrection, he confronts the futurewith a resolute, even defiant expression, entirelywithout illusions.” Andrew Stewart (Co-Curator of Greekand Roman Archaeology).
