Description:
Statue, Sepik, Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée haut. 13,5 cm ; 5 1/3 in Kevin Conru, Brussels Berend Hoekstra Collection, Brussels Literature Conru, "Les 'Yeux de Moko'", Tribal, n° 3, Eté 2003, p. 98 Eerhart, "De Kunstenaar en zijn etnografica - in gesprek met Berend Hoekstra", Object en Betekenis, VVE Jaarboek, Nummer 4, 2016, p. 9 Miniature remarquable, cette statuette concentre magistralement toute la puissance de la sculpture Sepik : le nez recourbé, signe de force masculine, la haute coiffe couverte de motifs claniques et les lignes anguleuses donnant à la figure sa saisissante présence. Représentation d'un esprit mythologique - combinant des caractères anthropomorphes et zoomorphes - cette statuette agissait comme charme protecteur. Propriété individuelle, elle portait chance à son propriétaire à la chasse comme à la guerre, mais aussi dans ses relations amoureuses. A remarkable miniature, this figure beautifully embodies the forcefulness of Sepik sculpture: the hooked nose - a sign of masculine strength - the high coiffure incised with clan motifs, and the angular lines that give the figure its striking presence. As a representation of a mythological spirit - combining anthropomorphic and zoomorphic characters - this figure acted as a protective charm. It was an individual possession intended to bring luck to its owner, in hunting as well as in war, but also in his relationships. Sepik figure, Papua New Guinea

Description:
A DIAGRAMATIC IMPRESSION OF THE PROPHET'S SANDAL
MOROCCO, 17TH/18TH CENTURY
Red and black ink on paper with polychrome pigments, depicting the outline of a stylised footprint, inscribed with praises to the Prophet Muhammad in white
maghribi
script reserved on blue ground, a diagram of the
minbar
of the mosque of the Prophet in Medina and the Haram, a geometric composition in the centre, surrounded with floral illumination, laid down on card
10 3/8 x 6 5/8in. (26.4 x 16.7cm.)
A similar diagram, although of the Prophet Ibrahim's footprint, sold at Christie's South Kensington, 5 October 2012, lot 626. Among the miracles popularly attributed to the Prophet Muhammad is the belief that his sandals left no imprint in the sand. The present piece was probably used as an amulet, carried at all times on one's body. These copies could also be hung in homes, to grant protection from the evil eye and intruders. They seem to have been very popular in north Africa. See an example in the British Library, dated to the 1800s (British Library, Or.6774).
