Anterior to 1945

Usually known under the name of “Nkisi”, this Figurine is typical of the “Fetishes of power”.
The whole body is wrapped in knotted fabric and the eyes are made of glass.

A fetishist priest, the “Nganga”, places magical ingredients into the cavity of the stomach (covered with fabric) and on the head, we can still note remains of incrusted plant material.

This figurine comes from a private collection of Germany, it was acquired between 1940 and 1945.

Reluctantly, I am selling it despite a recent purchase on this website, since I would like to start another collection.

Dimensions: 25,5 cm.

Figurine without any damage, in very good condition.
