Ritual figurine - Ngbaka / ubangui - Congo - SOLD

I particularly love the cubist form of this figure. Objects from this area are comparatively rare in Western.This original use of this particular figure is unknown. Generally, sculpture from this region had a wide range of uses; they were used by cults and sects that settled disputes within the village community, oversaw the moral development of youngsters, played a role in the healing of psychosomatic disorders, and offered their members protection and well-being.SpecsOriginEx private collection BelgiumSize11 x 5 cmDatingCirca 1950Material(s)Wood
