African art > Statues > Statuette Pyaang

Crouching figure Pyaang Kuba (N° 17979)

A Sub-group of Kuba established among the Kete, the Pyaang, specialized in the art of forging, also share with the Kuba Bushoong similar artistic traditions, including the use of large comparable heaume masks, but are distinguished by the production of figurines in crouching positions such as this statuette. The Lulua have these kinds of statuettes linked to a hunting rite in which a chief or soothsayer blows smoke on a statuette. They were carried away by hunters because they were given protective virtues. Golden brown patina with clay croputeux residue.
