On the Kanyok religion, the human being consists of three sets: body, soul and spirit. They believe in a supreme being named Tang a Ngoy.
The characters without scarifications and adornments stand opposite, faces close together, the woman sitting on her spouse's thighs. The oiled, dark brown patina has weak abrasions. Misses the end of a foot. Indigenous restoration on a thigh.
