Songye Nkisi Kalebwe statue (N° 21671)
Magic sculpture, Nkisi, nkishi (pl. mankishi ), carved in angular volumes and loaded with the bishimba probably lodged in the horn, the abdomen apparently not harboring any. The power of the fetish would be further enhanced by the presence of various accessories, metal, quolifichets, etc... In this case, only a skin loincloth dresses the fetish.
Matt patina. Strong erosions.
