This hand-carved wooden panel was created by an artisan of the Punu people of Gabon. Likely originally the door to a granary, the panel is carved with the "displayed female" motif, bordered by two reptiles. The female figure is decorated with an elaborate hairstyle and body scarification patterns, features of ideal feminine beauty. We love the visible chisel marks that animate the panel with rhythmic texture.
