Large statue Kongo Nkondo Nkisi-40.1/18.5 CM. Mpressive warrior frozen in an aggressive posture, tingling a medium dog, the elements giving him additional powers were hidden in a double abdominal cavity. At his feet, a gourd. The multiple nails recorded attest to the agreements made and exacerbate his mystical strength.

The beard of this village fetish is made up of nails arranged at regular intervals, then coated with the same crusty patina covering the entire room. Shez the Kongo, nganga took care of the rituals by activating a spiritual force with a nkondi pl. The term nkisi was then used to refer to the terms of'sacred' or'divine'. The most influential category of'minkisi kongo' consisted of instruments to help regional leaders enforce the law.

A metal object was nailed to a wooden figure as soon as a decision was made, each nail evoking a particular case: litigants, d. An original patina covers the item. The nkondi wanted to ensure that the agreement to resolve the conflict was properly implemented, and that individuals feared the consequences of their behaviour.

Its appearance thus personified the force residing there. From the second half of the 20th century, minkondi minkisi were strategically placed along the coasts of the Loango kingdom to protect against European incursions. Among the most powerful, the Mangaaka was considered the'king' and'master', supreme arbiter of conflicts and protector of communities, and who became the most ambitious and monumental sculptural genre.
