BYERI Head, Fang reliquary guardian on a bas.

The Byeri cult is a cult which honours ancestral spirits. In its broadest sense, the word "byeri" means ancestor; the reliquary guardians were set atop bark boxes known as nsek-byeri, which contained the skull of one or several important family members. Very few people were allowed to see the contents of the nsek byeri; it was a privilege usually given to one of the family’s mature sons.
Non-family-members were not allowed to see the contents of the nsek byeri.
