Zombo figure (N° 23548)

Object swaddled in different textiles from which a head emerges. Small elements indicate the presence of twigs and sticks making up the magic or therapeutic charge. The face with modeled features and wide ringed eyes wears a three-lobed headdress. Natural gray patina, locally coated with pinkish beige residues. Pigmented runs on textiles.
Neighbors of the Yaka and the Kongo in the west of the former Zaire, the Zombo fear, like the Kongo clans, the god named Nzambi< /i>. Their diviners use fetishes similar to those of the Kongo, the ceremonies associated with the initiation rites, however, stem from Yaka traditions. Fetish carvings are used by ngangas to protect against bad luck, to heal or to bring about luck, wealth and fertility. Their polychrome masks have very large bleached eye sockets.
