TSOGO FIGURES, Gabon

Tsogo ancestral reliqary figures and heads are connected with the Bwiti men's initiation society. The figures represent ancestors and harnessed their power to protect relics or the home. Many are encrusted with cracking paint and offerings to the ancestors. Many of the figures share the muscular tension found in neighboring and better-known Fang figures.

Despite their traditional appearance and wonderful patinas, these Tsogo figures show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
