Mallica Reynolds "Kapo" (Jamaican, 1911-1989). Hand-carved wooden figurine in the form of a female torso and head, 1964. Incised "Minty 64 by Kapo JAW" along the underside.

Provenance: Stanton L. Catlin, former director of the Center for Inter-American Relations; thence by descent.

Heavily driven by his religious convictions, Kapo believed he was divinely inspired to create paintings and sculptures, reflecting his Zion Revival beliefs. Dr. Veerle Poupeye, from the National Gallery of Jamaica, remarked that Kapo's artworks vividly portray the world of Zion Revival, including its ceremonies, music, and dance. Regarded as one of the greatest artists of the "Intuitives" movement, he is categorized by the National Gallery of Jamaica among self-taught artists formerly labeled as "Jamaican Primitives."

Height: 8 in x width: 3 in x depth: 3 1/2 in. There are no cracks, losses, or chips. There is some light dust/debris in the recessed areas. There are no visible signs of restoration under UV light.
