“Wisdom and Old Age” – Angola


Statue of an old woman with her hands covering her protruding abdomen and a cloth covering her genitals and hanging down between her legs. Her breasts are obscured and a string of beads around her neck symbolize spiritual wealth. The woman’s face is elongated, her chin jutting forward and her eyes accenuated. Adorning her head is a large hat with an tall, hollow jug topped by a cover; its emptiness is an invitation to fill the inside with wisdom in the future.
