Kuba/Bakongo statuette (N° 21304)

Embodiment of the king in African art sculpture. Of divine origin for his subjects, the king is depicted sitting cross-legged on the royal dais, unable to touch the ground. Both head of the kingdom and of the Bushoong chieftaincy, "nyim", supernatural abilities derived from witchcraft or the ancestors were attributed to him. He was therefore responsible for the survival of his subjects, whether it was through the harvests, the rain or the birth of children. However, these magical attributes were not hereditary. Light brown satin patina. Cracks.
