The Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is home to a cluster of hunter and gatherer peoples including the Bembe and Lega. The art traditions of this region are diverse and styles vary greatly from one village to the next. Ethnic attributions of authorship are therefore sometimes difficult and have to remain vague.

    Dear Ragnar,
    I don't understand your NO reaction politic ; I told you I want to refund you totally because you are unhappy but you don't give any sign of life ; why.
    I like to work in honesty with my clients because before it is a business it first a passion I share with people all around the world for an Art who is still unknown.
    I wish you a nice evening and hope you will tell me your intentions so I can proceed further.
    Kindest regards,
    Olivier
