Interceding in cases of social disorders, including infertility, was the responsibility of a priest caring for a male figure of imposing size from eastern Nigeria. These figures were believed to be family members of the Alusi, tributary deities, and were kept in shrine groups of up to 12. Each specific shrine would give the most importance to a male figure. When annual parades occurred, the Alusi figures were dressed, surfaced, and honored with a feast. Carved in the customary style of Onitsha region Alusi figures, the hands and feet are represented schematically while the face and torso display intricate detailing.
