Ndengese statue (N° 23339)

Bust statue whose prominent sexual organs refer to the lineage. The flared hairstyle surmounted by a summit horn is characteristic of the hairstyles acquired by the Totshi chiefs belonging to the ikoho association and evokes particular proverbs. It symbolizes respect, intelligence and maturity. The motifs engraved in relief refer to the scarifications that distinguished individuals socially and aesthetically. Satin black brown patina, cracks, small accidents.
People of Central Africa established in Kasai, neighbor of the Kuba, the Ndengese form one of the clans descended from a common ancestor Mongo, some of them originating of the Upper Nile. They produced primitive art statues with absent or truncated lower limbs, covered with graphic symbols, symbolizing the prestige of the chief. Ref.: "Treasures of Africa" Museum of Tervuren.
