Figure de couple Kanyok (N° 16904)

Living to the east of the Luba kingdom on the banks of the Mbujimayi River, and having adopted part of the Luba culture, the Kanyok created prestigious objects, water pipes, neck presses, sticks, and stools, and dark wooden carved statuettes bearing bun hairstyles depicted in different postures.
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.
