Zoomorphic figures in African art. Incarnating the spirit of a great ape, this monkey sculpture with its cub has benefited from libations of which a crusty aggregate remains on the surface, mixing feathers of chicks and animal hair. Colorful pigment tops. Desication cracks. Situated between Cameroon and Gabon, in the equatorial forest, the boulou are part of the Fang ensemble. Like the Fangs of South Cameroon famous for their large white masks, the Boulou also practiced the ritual Ngil to fight witchcraft and poisoning. Ngi is the gorilla, a fearsome animal to which the applicant identifies after his acceptance into the secret society.
