Two-faced figure.
Wood covered with a dark, thick glaze, traces of sacrificial substances.
Figure with a religious, magical character which represents a man and a womanpositioned back-to-back.Original name: Kabeja Common among the Luba, Hemba and Tabwa people, these sculptures belonged to the head of a family and were associated with the worship of their ancestors. Their function was to protect the couple against infertility, safeguard their children from the danger of disease, find a husband for their daughters to marry and so on. The magic nature of these objects is confirmed by the receptacle located on its head, which typically contained substances considered auspicious during rites.
