African art > The fetish, this emblematic object of primitive art > Songye statue

Songye 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. Watch the video
