LUMBU Statuette

Close to the Punu, the Lumbu are also from Congo.
This crouching girl statue is indeed reminiscent of some Bakongo pieces, both by scarifications, by the squatting attitude and glass eyes.
Certainly a piece of divination, used in the exercise of its functions, soliciting the intervention of spirits by means of this figurine.
Great dignity in attitude of concentration and openness to invisible.
Beautiful plastic construction.
