Zombo Statuette (N° 25177)

Naturalism treated with care for this standing statuette, flanked by long arms away from the bust. The refined details distinguish this work embellished with colorful ornaments. Smooth satin patina.
Neighbors of the Yaka and the Kongo in the west of the former Zaire, the Zombo fear, like the Kongo clans, the god named Nzambi< /i>. Their diviners use fetishes similar to those of the Kongo, the ceremonies associated with the initiation rites, however, stem from Yaka traditions. Fetish carvings are used by the ngangas to protect against bad luck, to heal or to bring about luck, wealth and fertility. Their polychrome masks have very large bleached eye sockets.
