    (missing the bell)

    Small oval-shaped bell, slightly domed and crowned with a maternity hospital in the round. On the front, it is engraved with a mask seen from the front on a diamond-shaped background, on the reverse, a turtle seen from above.
    The maternity unit constituting the sleeve presents a woman sitting cross-legged, her face facing upwards. She holds her newborn baby with her openwork arms.

    Considered as minkisi, ritual objects, these dibu bells had the ability to awaken spirits. They were activated by a sorcerer to enable the activation of an Nkisi.
