Resting on two feet, this figure is the representation of a clan ancestor. The very sculptural figure whose body is composed by a succession of inwards and backwards curves. The heart- shaped face is inscribed in a round face delimited by thinely carved engravings. In 100 Peoples of Zaire, Marc L. Felix mentioned a ritual practice to some Mbole figures giving this dark smoky patina. Remains of an old collection inscription in white ink on the foot.
