    life size sculptures of royal cameroon warriors

    I have 7 life size original wooden sculptures from the Grassfields of Cameroon. I believe that they are replicates of the main Cameroon Gods who protected the village. These statues were brought from the village to the UK with full papers from the Cameroon embassy who needed to give permission to remove them from Cameroon (which they have done). I believe they are a mixture of the King Mbuembue, son of Kouotou, who was the 11th mfon, of the Kingdom of Banum/Banoum. Mbuembue was the first to enlarge the kingdom, and, following an attack by the Fulani in the early 19th century, he fortified Foumban with a surrounding wall and ditch. There are also Gods from the Njoya family.

    The large sculpture (King Mbuembue) is circa 175cm tall x 35cm wide x 35 cm deep.
    The smaller sculpture (the Queen) is circa 120cm tall x 35cm wide x 35cm deep.
    This royal couple were brave warriors and the village who created the sculptures filled them with Gods and prayed to them to protect the village with the courage and regality of the sculptures.
    Full papers have been obtained directly from the Cameroon Government to enable transportation from Cameroon and their sale. They are in the UK if you want to view them in person.
