Fetish statuette Boulu, Bulu (N° 18775)

Anthropozoomorphic representations in African art.
Embodying the spirit of a great ape, this particularly expressive statuette embodies an orangutan . The hips are encircled with raffia cords imprisoned in a resin. The hands rest on a voluminous abdomen. The satin patina is close to a scabby residue. Erosions at the top. Crack of desiccation.
Located between Cameroon and Gabon, in the equatorial forest, the Boulou are part of the Fang ensemble. Like the Fang of South Cameroon famous for their large white masks, the Boulou also practiced the Ngil ritual to fight against witchcraft and poisoning. Ngi is the gorilla, a fearsome animal with which the applicant identifies after being accepted into the secret society.
