Ngulu Ngombe execution knife (N° 20606)

"Execution" knives are also parade weapons, such as this ngulu with a wooden handle partially wrapped with copper wire. In northwestern Zaire, south of the Ubangi,live the 6000 Moswea-Ngombe of Bantu language. Their neighbors are the Ngbandi and the Ngbaka and various banda groups. They knew no god but expected favors from their ancestors, among them health and prosperity. Their throwing knives used for hunting were used as currency.
