Tribal art - Bakongo:

In Congo, Iboga is a drug with a great influence on Bakongo social life. According to the natives, an initiate can not be part of the cult if he has not seen Bwiti, and the only way to see Bwiti is to eat Iboga. The very complex ceremonies and dances associated with its consumption vary from place to place. Iboga also affects the Bakongo with other aspects of Bwiti worship, concerning among other things the control of events. Sorcerers take it to inquire into the spirit world, and cult leaders consume it before seeking advice from ancestors. The sorcerer eats iboga to be a good intercessor between the living and the dead.
