This is a great Fetish Statue from the Congo. The diverse ritual pieces from the DRC are some of the most magically powerful and important art produced on the continent. The relations between the living and which lies beyond are harmonized by ancestral spirits, natural spirits (bakinda), local spirits (bisimbi) and ambivalent forces (minkisi). These supernatural entities are evoked by the village Nganga and elders. They are often asked to heal, to empower, to ensure success to bless and to protect individuals or the entire tribe. Magical substances or medicines called "bilongo": blood, hair, bones, feathers, earth, shells, fiber twine, clay, nails, seeds are used singularly or in combinations to empower ritual objects. This is a wonderfully unique statue, an interesting piece of Congo culture and art that would be lovely in your home.
