Product remarks

  • The unique item shown on the image is the exact item you will receive.
  • A typical Ndengese (Dengese) King ancestral figure with nice varied patina. The stylistic similarities with the sculpture of the neighboring Kuba people are evident. A distinguished feature of the Ndengese statues is that they end just below the pubic area without legs. Statues usually feature abundant and elaborate scarifications over the body. Each of them has ritual meanings which constitute a kind of sign language. Statues like this are said to represent the king and were believed to embody his power. The hands posed around the navel recalls the common origin of those who depend to the chief.
