Ngombe Statue (N° 23664) Deposit sale

Old abstract figure with a flat head on which the lines are engraved presents a tubular bust rising from a zoomorphic lower part. A cylindrical cavity takes the place of the genitals.
Patina of use, satiny areas alternating with velvety abraded areas, erosions and desication cracks.
An object of a similar type is illustrated on page 127 of "100 people of Zaire and their Sculpture", Marc Léo Félix.
The relatively small Ngombe artistic production was marked by the influence of neighboring groups, Ngbandi and Ngbaka. These sculptures, mostly magical fetishes, were used by the soothsayer bendo to promote 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.
