Representation of a female fetish.
The latter is represented standing in a stylized manner, the arms blending into the mass of the body. Two barely perceptible small breasts overhang a protruding abdomen thus making the junction with the upper limbs. The lower part of the body is worked in the manner of a cone thus allowing the stability of the work which was placed outside. The upper part of the body is characterized by a broad and minimalist neck on which takes place a triangular face slightly turned to the right. Two large, wide, fine eyes frame a trapezoidal nose under which a half-open mouth takes place.
In African culture, death, disease or disaster are never natural. They result from the harmful action of an enemy or from a failure with regard to the gods and ancestors. Good is in a way only the absence of evil, hence the importance of being constantly surrounded by an escalation of fetishes.
