Rare drum with Ngombe handle, in the shape of a barrel, established on feet resuming in miniature the stylized anthropomorphic morphology of the pipes in use in the group. It is decorated with coins from the 1930s, arranged in vertical lines, with regularity, on the sides.
The object shows obvious signs of use.

The relatively limited artistic production of the Ngombe, Doko, or Likungu has been marked by the influence of neighboring groups, Ngbandi and Ngbaka. Their sculptures, mostly magical fetishes, would be used by the bendo soothsayer to aid hunting.
The Ngombe migrated from Lake Victoria in East Africa. After dispersing, some of them settled among the Ngala on the banks of the Zaire River.
