A Bas Relief sculpture created by Nigerian-born artist Darlington D. Ike. The artwork depicts a female conguero.
A conguero is a musician skilled in playing the conga drum. This tall and narrow Afro-Cuban percussion instrument is an integral part of Latin and Afro-Caribbean music. The conga player is responsible for producing rhythmic patterns, intricate beats, and improvisations that contribute to the energetic and infectious grooves of genres like salsa, rumba, go-go and Afro-Cuban jazz.
Their expertise and rhythmic mastery bring life and excitement to musical ensembles creating a captivating experience for both performers and listeners alike.
This Bas-Relief sculpture is made out of fiberglass and acrylic on plyboard. Measures 24x16 inches in size.
A Bas-Relief African sculpture is a form of artistic expression that involves carving or sculpting a design onto a flat surface. In this technique, the sculpture is created with a shallow depth, allowing the design to emerge subtly from the background. The figures and forms depicted in bas-relief sculptures are skillfully carved, resulting in a visually striking artwork that combines elements of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. The sculptor/artist creates a sense of depth and texture while maintaining a connection to the surface from which the sculpture arises.
Bas-Relief African sculptures often feature intricate details, symbolic motifs, and representations of cultural narratives, capturing the essence of African traditions and aesthetics.
One cannot speak of African Bas-Relief sculpture without mentioning the profound contributions of the ancient Kingdom of Benin, located in present-day Nigeria. The Benin Kingdom, renowned for its bronze and brass casting techniques, created elaborate bas-relief sculptures that depicted historical events, royalty, and spiritual symbolism. The highly skilled artisans of the Benin Kingdom mastered the art of bas-relief, leaving a lasting legacy of remarkable craftsmanship and artistic expression that continues to inspire contemporary African artists and art enthusiasts around the world.
