Accompanying the cult figure of ancestors amongst the Mbete are sculpted figures with a unique characteristic - a back depicting... Braids figures styled in a quadruple crest emphasize the stocky individual wearing them, who is standing near a reliquary cavity. His features exude an imposing character. A hollowed out space is present in the barrel bust. The suggestion of legs ready to leap is prevalent. Desiccation has left erosions and cracks on the surface, bearing witness to the ritual dance once performed there. The dark patina, abraded and weathered, adds to the unique character of this site.
