Comparation with the patina of a  Fang head, element from a reliquary ensemble. Fang peoples, Betsi group, Gabon, Mitzic region, Ndjolé. Musée d'Ethnographie, Neuchatel (Photo ETHNOFLORENCE at MET NYC "Eternal Ancestors, The Art of the Central African Reliquary" exhibition). This particulary, important, and rare  quality of patina derives from the fact that over the corse this artifact was used, the suface of the wood was completely impregned with applications of palm oil, in the present this beautifull piece of art continues to exude that substance.
