Dinka Staff, Sudan


Dinka Staff, Sudan, 28" (height), wood, metal. Used as a status symbol by chiefs, diviners, healers, female leaders and heads of important lineages. Also the holder of this staff had the floor in public debates. The slight undulation underneath the head may indicate that this figure is female. There is fine attention to the carving of the face and notice the inlaid metal decorations. There is a small stable gash half way up the staff, otherwise good condition with signs of age. Though not yet vetted this piece is believed to be old. Metal stand included.
