2nd half of the 20th century - Very good condition

2nd half of the 20th century - Museum piece
Around 1964 - Very good condition
Former Maison Schott, Brussels.
Dimensions: 34 x 10 cm.

Little figurine named Yanda, of an animal or human shape, with an apotropaic role, these statuettes were exhibited during divinatory rites.
The word Yanda means strength or spirit, but also refers to these figurines.
These statuettes often have the face sculpted in the shape of a diamond, with bulging eyes (sometimes made of beads) and iron rings on the ears and on the nose.
The torso is cylindrical, the limbs are short.
“Among the Zande, the Yanda, little sculptures ornamented with beads, rings, smeared with all sorts of libations, were preferred for the use of magic or witchcraft.
These objects were used by members of the Mani, a secret society, a political counter-power established by the Zande people in the Central African Republic, which used to extend until the north of former Zaire.”
