Garnet brown glossy patina, small accidents.
An iconoclastic raid, under the influence of Islamic occupants, caused most of the ritual sculptures of the Zula to disappear. The latter nevertheless safeguarded the worship of the ancestors, the worship devoted to the Alunga spirit, and perpetuated the use of offerings to the spirits of nature.
