Ref: sf-2075height: 30CMProduct DescriptionBembe statue from Congo DRC. Piece over 50 years old. The Bembe are a Kongo ethnic group living in the south of the Republic of Congo, in the department of Bouenza, around Mouyondzi. Their number has been estimated at more than 80,000 in this region1. Some communities are also established in the north of Angola and in the north-west of the Democratic Republic of Congo1. The Bembe carve small statuettes representing the ancestors, who wear abdominal scarifications. Some have an elongated torso and flattened shoulders. Others, more realistic, feature hunters. The term Basikasingo is an ethnonym artificially created during the colonial period and which designates small heterogeneous groups scattered over the territory of the Bembe, in the region of Fizi, between the Luama River and the western shore of Lake Tanganyika. All the traditions of the region report that different groups of hunters, coming from the north, south and south-west, settled in this region long before the Bembe and the Lega settled there, which is why Biebuyck referred to them as “pre-Bembe”. Although the Bembe, like the so-called "pre-Bembe" groups, all worship their ancestors, whose symbols they keep in small sanctuaries, the former have only a few sculpted figures of ancestors, unlike the Basikasingo, each chief of which has several effigies of his ascendants, male and female.African art, African maskafrican art african tribal art arte africana afrikanische kunstPart delivered with an invoice and a certificate of authenticity.The term Basikasingo is an ethnonym artificially created during the colonial period and which designates small heterogeneous groups scattered over the territory of the Bembe, in the region of Fizi, between the Luama River and the western shore of Lake Tanganyika.
