Babembe Statuary (N° 19406)

The first monograph devoted to the artistic and symbolic production of the Babembe people, established on the shores of Lake Tanganika, this richly illustrated book presents the anthropomorphic wooden sculptures that this people devoted to the cult of ancestors. The majority of them are reproduced here for the first time; their decoration bears witness to the tattoos, scarification and skin ornaments that the Babembe used to embellish their bodies during initiation rituals.
