Nkishi fetish figure Kongo - SOLD OUT

This figure has preserved the receptacle of magic ingredients placed on its belly.
The sculptor took care to detail by taking care of embedding pieces of glass in the eyes in order to breathe life into the living room. The patina is smooth except for the load which is crusty.
If most minkisi (sing nkisi) are devoid of sex.
The posture is classic and typologically correct, a character standing on a small promontory, the body leaning slightly forward.
The wood is visibly old and wears.
Minksi statues of this quality are not frequent.
