Statue Yaka Yiteke (N° 19255)

These tribal statues, ritual charms belonging to the lineages and providing protection against enemies, were made according to the instructions of the Nganga ngoombu and the person who commissioned the object. These sculptures were then activated using rituals and incantatory formulas, and additions in the form of talismans. The hands of the figure rest on his bulbous bust. The headdress is that of the earthen chiefs, the nose has a characteristic curled up point shape. These sculptures were often suspended in the boxes. Dark satin patina. Erosions. Suku and Yaka, very close geographically, have the same social and political structure and similar cultural practices. They can only be differentiated by their stylistic variations.
