This is a very rare old wooden idol sculpture from the Ngbaka peoples of the Lualaba river region, in the heart of Africa, the Congo. Very well weathered and worn female shrine idol with undeniable age and weathered patina. The wood is dense and heavy, suggesting great age to acquire such a worn patina. Among the Ngbaka, male and female human figures were placed at shrines as representations of the mythical ancestor Sètò and his sister-spouse, Nàbo. This is possibly an image of the Ancestor Nabo.Measures 31 inches tall.

Condition

Heavily eroded and weathered, losses to headdress and feet. Repair to headdress.
