Djenne Male & Female Thinker Figures
These male and female figures, reminiscent of early terracotta Djene figures from Mali, seem to be in a "thinker" pose. The stylized design, studded texture, body position, and the uniquely emotive gaze are typical of terracotta found near the Great Mosque of Djenne built by Mansa Musa around 1320 CE. It is unusual to see this style made in bronze, making this set quite rare.
