Punu Tribe Sculpture

These sculptures are characterized by their smooth, oval-shaped faces, high foreheads, almond-shaped eyes, and intricate hairstyles often featuring elaborate headdresses. The Punu people are an ethnic group from Gabon, located in Central Africa. They are known for their craftsmanship and attention to detail, with each piece reflecting the cultural and spiritual significance of the tribe. These sculptures are often used in traditional ceremonies and rituals.

About the Tribe

The Punu people reside on the left bank of the Upper Ngoume River in Gabon and belong to the group of tribes known as Shira. They live in independent villages that are divided into sects and families. Punu or Bapunu tribe is the second largest ethnic group in Gabon in terms of population. The Punu are matrilineal and trace their lines of descent through the women. The female ancestors are honored with okuyi ‘white masks’ that harness their power.
