This is a fabulous One of a Kind and Rare African Bakongo Animal Fetish from the Congo. Fetishes were protective figures used by individuals, families, or whole communities to destroy or weaken evil spirits, prevent or cure illnesses, repel bad deeds, solemnize contracts or oath-taking. and decide arguments. A diviner or holy person would activate the statue, using magical substances. Fetishes gained power and were effective because people believed in them.This figure takes the form of a dog, because of its ability to protect and to search out evil forces. The nails or blades, when driven in, were to activate the figure's spiritual power, offering protection or serving oath-taking or trial purposes. Small figures were family owned and were used to protect the home, larger ones would protect an entire village.
This is a magnificent Bakota Nail Fetish and would compliment your collection or home.
