Chamba figurine are rare. Their use is related to the cult of the ancestors.
Sometimes covered with a thick patina, they serve to communicate with spirits.
Their shape presents certain similar features with the figurines of their close neighbours, the Mumuyé, like the enormous trunk and the little short legs in zig-zag.
Other very close ethnic groups (Karim, Wurkum, Jukun...) also reproduce Mumuye features, which makes our Chamba attribution uncertain

    Artikel entsprach der Beschreibung.
    Und war zudem preiswert ersteigert.
    Also fast rundum zufrieden, wenn nicht der
    Statuette ein Geruch nach geräuchertem Schinken anhaften würde, der stört etwas!
