Yaka (Bayaka) in traditional African art in Congo

African figure of standing figure with a prominent nose. The hands are at the height of the abdomen and the knees are flexed in a dynamic attitude. The upturned nose, characteristic of several other ancient sculptures, quickly identified for the three-dimensional sculpture Yaka, but this feature has not already passed in the round-robin statuary made after 1930.

The turned-up nose explicitly refers to the morphology of the masks involved in the rites of initiation into adulthood, where this nasal appendage is a phallic symbol and an evocation of elephant.
