    The Vili, Lâri, Sûndi, Woyo, Bembé, Bwende, Yombé and Kôngo formed the Kôngo group, led by King Ntotela. Their kingdom reached its apogee in the 16th century thanks to the ivory and copper trade and the slave trade. Sharing the same beliefs and traditions, they created a statuary with codified gestures in keeping with their vision of the world. Nganga sorcerers, who were both healers and responsible for religious activities, mediated with the Nzambi God through consecrated figures. To this end, protective figures called minkisi (pl.) were made and loaded by the nganga.
