Togbo Statues (N° 24919)

African sculpture depicting subjects back to back that can be associated with the mythical couple. Abraded matte patina, desiccation cracks.
Descended from the Banda group, the Togbo originally immigrated from the Lake Chad region to the Ubangi territories. They rubbed shoulders with the Ngbaka and the Ngombe , shared the habits and customs of different Banda clans, but were above all marked by the influence populations of the Central African Republic (CAR). Besides the ancestors, they fear the spirits of nature and practice divination in an attempt to improve their destiny. Among their various ritual sculptures, the zukoro statuettes intervened during reconciliations after a crime and were placed on altars where they were the object of libations. Couples of protective statuettes of very variable appearance, also for therapeutic use, formed a pair called Yasangbanga.
