    Miapsi ANCESTOR STATUETTE
    Culture Tabwa, South-East of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia and Tanzania
    First half of the 20th century
    Bright patina wood
    H: 25; W .: 8; Thickness: 4 cm

    A female statuette standing on short, bent legs, individualized from each other, and with wide feet resting on a circular base. Her hands rest on her stomach, on either side of her raised umbilicus, her shoulders are angular and her arms are openwork. His low chest is signified in two small cones overhanging an abdominal scarification of rectangular checkerboard shape. This pattern is repeated on the face. It is rounded in shape, marked with a pair of almond-shaped eyes and a rectangular nose. The raised ears are C-shaped. Her hairstyle is streaked and the lines of the braids point towards the nape of the neck.

    Body scarifications refer to significant data from the Tabwa culture. The vertical ventral marks echo the balance, the facial lines point to the spiritual center. These protective ancestor figures were passed down from generation to generation and kept in sacred places.
