Fine Nsapo Nsapo Nkisi figure - The Democratic Republic of the Congo

From the Belgian Collector Gi Matheusen

The Nsapo Nsapo are a small ethnic group living in the central south of Congo. They are stylistically influenced by the Songye, of whom they once were a subgroup, as well as by the Luba among others. Such power figures called ‘Nkisi’ were used in the south of Congo as protection from illnesses, as guardians against witchcraft, for the administration of justice, for divination and soothsaying.
