Ndengese Etotoshi ancestor figure
Wood, shiny dark patina.
Provenance: R.D.Congo
Height 42 cm wood display included
20th century - good condition-

The statues themselves are so rare. A distinguishing 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. The rolls of the elongated neck and a simple flared coiffure are also one of the characteristics of the Ndengese figures. The tope–knot is the sign of Etotoshi and appears on all Ndengese prestige objects of the highest level.
