Sundi Fetish (N° 24931)

In addition to their weapons and prestigious objects, their funerary sculpture, the Sundi made use, individually and collectively, of fetishes of conjuration or fertility often equipped with a magic charge. The female subject treated in a naturalistic way is frozen in a posture highlighting her abdomen. Crusty brown patina, desiccation cracks, erosions.
The Vili , the Lâri, the Sûndi, the Woyo, the Bembe, the Bwende, the Yombé and the Kôngo formed the Kôngo group, led by King ntotela . Their kingdom reached its peak in the 16th century with the trade in ivory, copper and the slave trade. With the same beliefs and traditions, they produced a statuary endowed with a codified gesture in relation to their vision of the world.
