This figurine incarnates a tutelary feminine spirit, invoked to obtain favours related to fertility and healing.
These statuettes are arranged around a Muyombo altar, a tree on which sacrifices and offerings were done at the base.
The wood which was used is very dense.
Wonderful satin patina of a honey colour.
With vertical desiccation cracks on the headdress and body, which were locally filled.
