BAKONGO HEAD FETISH 1, Congo

We've never seen another object like this and have no idea what it might have been used for - if indeed it was ever used. Although it is hollowed out in back, it could not have been a mask.

Old Bakongo fetishes are very rare. Despite its appearance, this fetish head shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
