Kirdi Set (N° 25548) Deposit sale

Fringed garment, loincloth, bordering a hand-woven belt made of plant fibers and highlighted with glass beads. More than an accessory, this type of adornment above all forms a “rampart” against evil spirits.
Height on base: 36 cm.
The group of animist peoples Kirdi, or "pagans", as the Islamized peoples have called them, are established in the far north of Cameroon, on the border of Nigeria.
They include the Matakam, Kapsiki, Margui, Mofou, Massa, Toupouri, Fali, Namchi, Bata, Do ayo... They live from agriculture, fishing and livestock.
Among the Fali, the cult of ancestors is illustrated by a great importance given to the skulls of the deceased, because thought and knowledge resided there.

Possibility of payment in 3x (3x 263.3 €)
