    Statue of an ancestor known as "adu zatua". It represents a man standing without arms. His erect sex is an attribute that designates the ancestors and symbolizes the lineage. A necklace adorns his neck. The face is stoic, it is there to protect. He wears a mustache and a goatee. He wears a crown topped by two horns.
