This fine Fang figure is clearly in a northern Fang style and is probably from the Ntoumou as is suggested by the elongated form of the body and the long slender arms. There are clear similarities to the famous and frequently published figure formerly in the Jacob Epstein collection and now in the Rosemary and George Lois collection (Perrois, L., la statuaire fan gabon, Paris, 1972, no. 216, p. 201) which Perrois attributes to the Ntoumou. Both figures have a long tapered face with slender nose and small mouth. The pectoral muscles are in each case carved in shallow relief on the upper body. The arms of both figures are of long slender form and curved towards the lower abdomen with a prominent line at the junction of the shoulder and upper arm. as is this the case with many other Ntoumou figures the fingers of the hands are not delineated.
