MANKISHI SONGYE Statue
NKISI are very powerful protective fetishes that can be used for an entire village or for a single family, as in this case.
It has a charge on the belly and in the horn on the head.
The beaded, lively and inquisitive eyes to flush out all approaching dangers.
The blue and white beaded necklace invokes the ancestors' spirits protection.
Beautiful patina of antiquity.
