Yanda Zande Figurines (N° 11070)

This coin was part of the collection of Jesuit Father Vincent Charles.

The Yanda statuettes are part of the rituals of the association mani created in 1910 celebranting the importance of women. The head of this society was blowing smoke and pouring in these statuettes to infuse him with his powers.
From simple form, the pyramid head, here inverted, has the face consisting of two faces separated by the ridge of the nose. The eyes are made up of cured.
The trunk is thick, incorporating bent arms, and carried by strong legs also bent.
The piece stands out for the attention to detail of the headdress. It is streaked and pulled back while small parallel scarifications adorn the forehead.

In the course of their history, the Zande had many contacts and interbreeding with their Mangbetu neighbours so much so that their styles were extremely influenced.
