Nice partly leather covered Lega Figure - Democratic Republic of the Congo

Lega art is linked exclusively to the Bwami society. The objects, used only by the initiates, have a specific role in Lega rites and ceremonies. 
The statues are used during initiation rites and act as a reminder of Proverbs, instructions, or moreover stories about the ancestors. ( text from African-art.net ).
