OviMbundu Statue (N° 24057)

African sculpture of a young OviMbundu woman generally devoted to the female initiation rituals of young nyaneka girls following the efuko ritual, in connection with fertility or divination. Brown satin patina, desication cracks, alterations.
It is on the Benguela plateau in Angola that the Ovimbudu, Ovimbundu, have been established for several centuries, made up of farmers and breeders. Forming the largest ethnic group in Angola, they belong to Bantu speakers, such as Nyaneka, Handa, Nkhumbi, and other groups from the region of Huila, or Wila. Their statuary made in light wood is relatively restrained.
