Kusu / Hemba figure (N° 20804)
Unlike the Janiform Kabeja figures, this female statuette of the Lubaisé Kusus, probably linked to fertility rituals, is the incarnation of an ancestor. It was in fact under the Hemba influence in particular that the cult of ancestors was supported by statuary evoking heroes or chiefs, or the mythical ancestor Soba.
Greyish black patina, slightly satin-like.
