About "West African Male Bust" artclone

The original of this artclone from the Maghreb, probably dating back to the 11th century. The sophistication of the young expressive visage is a homage to simplicity and beauty.

The broad, prominent brow, the pronounced cheekbones, the well-defined and strong nose, add to the commanding presence of the figure. The beard and the mustache are rendered with a tactile realism, suggesting a meticulous approach to capturing the subject's appearance. The head is adorned with a simple yet significant turban, providing an element of cultural identity.

This artclone deserves to become the distinctive piece in Ethnic arrangements or to stand out in an Urban Chic setting. The terracotta original has a pale glaze which suggests a strong, decisive colour for the artclone in order to exalt the virility in the face of the young African.
