Kongo Sundi fetish statuette (N° 19799)

In addition to their weapons and prestige objects and their funerary sculpture, the Sundi made use, individually and collectively, of conjuring fetishes equipped with a magical charge. The latter, protruding, takes the form of an amalgam or bilongo generally consisting of various ingredients from, among other things, the natural environment including red clay, red wood powder tukula, white clay pembe... Crusty patina. Cracks and slight lacks.
The Vili , the Lâri, the Sûndi, the Woyo, the Bembé, the Bwende, the Yombé and the Kôngo formed the Kôngo group, headed by the king ntotela . Their kingdom reached its peak in the 16th century with the ivory and copper trade and the slave trade. With the same beliefs and traditions, they produced a statuary endowed with a codified gesture in relation to their vision of the world.
