Portrait of a Boy: Sean …

Gift of Gilbert M. Frimet
This small Pende ivory pendant (<em>ikhoko</em>) depicts a delicately carved male head. Stylistically, <em>ikhoko</em> bear many of the facial characteristics of anthropomorphic Pende <em>mbuya</em> masks, after which they have been modeled. In this particular example, an ovoid head rests atop a conical neck and features a spiked, crown-like coiffure, a large, bulbous forehead, a V-shaped brow, laterally protruding ears, heavily lidded and downcast eyes, an up-turned nose, a wide mouth, and a slightly pointed chin. Circular motifs decorate the top of the forehead and the neck. The pendant also possesses a pale yellow patina, possibly from contact with tukula powder.
