This rare and fabulous Coiled Baga Snake Shoulder Statue from Guinea. This Baga Snake statue's traditional use is wearing it on the shoulder. This Baga snake is was worn in a vertical state off the mans shoulder. The spiritual force represented by this is known as a-Mantsho-na-Tshol, or roughly "master of medicine," reigns supreme in Baga society. The primary physical manifestation of a-Mantsho-na-Tshol is as this brilliantly colored, larger-than-life aquatic serpent resembling a boa constrictor. The sinuous curves and undulating contours of the elegant sculptural representation evoke the power, elusive grace, and flexibility of this Baga spiritual entity. Among the Baga, public accessibility to the instruments of spiritual power like this was relatively restricted. They were linked with male esoteric knowledge, and their control lay in the hands of leaders of secret associations and family lineages. This would be a fabulous and unique item to add to your collection. or home.
