Very Rare Old Collection Piece.

This postcard was made from an extraordinary colonial photograph, that was perhaps taken by a member of the Congrégation du Saint-Esprit. It depicts the healer (Attributed to Monsignor Augouard, A Sangu 'nganga' / healer), with various reliquaries in the form of boxes made of bark or baskets covered with strips of hide. When it was reproduced in 1912 in a book "Chez les Fang ou quinze années de séjour au Congo Francais" by Henri Trilles (1866-1949), a French missionary of the Congrégation du Saint-Esprit, the photograph was made less 'offensive' to its audience by painting a collared white shirt on the healer.

Photographer unknown, creation date: late 19th century. The image ist excellent, as per scan. Postally unused.

    Sie haben es gekauft und Sie haben 4 Wochen Zeit gehabt es abzuholen. Aber Sie haben NICHTS gemacht. Ich habe gewartet und ich will jetzt endlich das Geld haben. Meine Geduld ist jetzt zu Ende. Wenn Sie ein Problem haben, klären Sie das Problem mit Catawiki, nicht mit mir.
