African art - Bwende:

The Bwende belong to the Kôngo group, alongside the Lâri, Sûndi, Vili, Bembé, Yombé, Woyo and Kongo. Their king is called ntotela. Their traditions and beliefs are similar. These ethnic groups produced statuary that reflected their representation of the world. In the 16th century, the Kongo group experienced an important growth, thanks to the copper and ivory trade but also through slavery.
