This is a Fabulous Old African Kamba Witch Doctors Woven Fiber Medicine, Healing Ritual Bag with Gourds and Calabashes and a Healing Stick with a Leather Cloth to Pour Herbs or Healing Items on from the Kamba People from Kenya. This bag was used in healing and ritual ceremonies. Gourds were placed in the bag storing all kinds of remedies that can be associated with magical powers. This bag was used by a shaman or tribal healer. Kamba people are famous for their medicine men, some commonly referred to as “witchdoctors” who carry their bag of charms and medicine in hand woven chiondos (bags). Each healer will differ in what they claim to heal, whether it be the purely physical, spiritual, or both and how they do so. This spiritual element of their practice is precisely what gives them local credibility among a community who share this awareness of, and respect for, the spiritual realm. Despite possessing a vast knowledge of local plants and herbs, the basis of the healing is always grounded in the supernatural. Divination is sometimes used as a diagnostic tool, and often report being visited by ancestors or spirits in dreams who reveal medicinal recipes. This is a One of a Kind collectors item, museum quality and very rare to find.
A wonderful item for you home or collection.
