Powerfull Suku fetish figure from DR Congo. The majority of Yaka figures were associated with Mbwoolo shrines. Their abdomen are hollow, enabling the insertion of fetish material and they are also adorned with bundles of paraphernalia. Yaka figures are multi-functional and sometimes have contradictory roles, for example, they were used to heal and to cause illness. Good condition with traces of tribal use.
